Special Call to Action!
Join The Fight Against Human Trafficking

Rotary District 6900 is filled with people of action. We know that Metro-Atlanta is a major human trafficking hub. Now, we are asking YOU to do something about it!

The Atlanta Rotary Council Against Human Trafficking has partnered with the International Human Trafficking Institute (IHTI), the Rotary Action Group Against Slavery (RAGAS), and Human Traffic Proof GA. January is “End Human Trafficking” month. IHTI is offering two one-hour instructor-led, virtual training events multiple times to Rotarians in January. Each has its own sign-in link ... click sign up for the sessions you wish to attend.

Human Trafficking: Learn, See, and Do Something: Learn the truth of human trafficking, groups that are most at risk, and trafficking's massive scope. You will learn how vulnerable people become prey to sex and labor traffickers and leave knowing the signs of trafficking with actions you can take.

Human Trafficking: Protecting our Children Online: Training will define labor and sex trafficking, and address signs parents should watch for as their children move from elementary through high school. Attendees learn who is typically most vulnerable to human trafficking, along with a new phenomenon amongst young people, sexting. Parents cringe, but this training talks about sexting and the laws about sexting.
