Free Community Informational Session Re: Stopping Human Trafficking

October 23, 2019 - 6:30 PM - Crowne Plaza Hotel at Perimeter

Our club is hosting a free, informative event addressing the issue of human trafficking. The event, which is scheduled for Wednesday, October 23 at 6:30 P.M. at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia, includes both a private showing of the movie “8 Days” and a candid discussion with federal, state, and local law enforcement. We would like to have as many club members as possible attend this special event, AND we need your help:

  • In sharing the event with your neighbors and friends - we are sharing, through an ad in the Crier, Facebook, letters to local churches, schools and homeowner associations but can use your help to spread the word!
  • As a volunteer to help welcome attendees on the 23rd. Contact Griff Ransom at if you can help!

The purpose of the program is to build public awareness of sex trafficking in our communities, to learn about local resources, and to recognize danger signs and potential preventive actions.

Thanks to Charlie Augello for leading this initiative - and to his committee that includes Griff Ransom, Louise Barden, Tina Philpott, Anne Glenn, Kathy Brandt and Erica Brown. Thanks to their efforts, we also have a host of sponsors who have allowed us to make this a free event - including presenting sponsor Crowne Plaza Hotel Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia and premier sponsors Dunwoody Crier (now part of the Appen Media Group we'll hear more about at this Friday's meeting), The UPS Store, Jett FerryRoad@The Williamsburg Shopping Center, and Anderson Parking. for making this important program available in our community.

The movie, “8 Days” tells the story of one 16-year girl’s life in trafficking and how her family and community got her back.The candid discussion with representatives from local, state and federal law enforcement will offer facts, insight and resources to shed light on the nature and scope of the issue in our communities.Complimentary on-site self-parking is available for this event.
