Local Leaders to Hold Human Trafficking Awareness Event
The event will be held Tuesday, Aug. 28 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Roswell.
Think human trafficking is a third-world problem? Think again. While the issue is something that plagues countries throughout the world, the metro Atlanta isn't immune - in fact, it's a hub.
It's one of the many reasons Roswell Rotary will host "Stop Human Trafficking Now" next week.
“We feel Rotary is the missing link and are very excited for Rotary to get involved in this and feel we could really help make a difference to Stop Human Trafficking" said Roswell Rotary President Dave McCleary.
This meeting Tuesday, Aug. 28, will be one of the club's most informative and inspiring yet, say organizers. The goal is to develop an educational and awareness program that can be implemented though out our district and eventually Rotary International. Representatives from Wellspring Living and Street Grace, Judge Bill Riley and a victim of Human Trafficking, who has a compelling story of being trafficked and how Wellspring helped her restore her life will form a discussion panel, similar to the club meeting that was held in March. The Roswell club has invited area pastors, principals and law enforcement to be a part of the audience, in an effort to get more people on board with stemming the prevalence of the issue.
The free event, Tuesday, Aug. 28 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at the DoubleTree Hotel, 1075 Holcomb Bridge Road, is open to the public. For questions or to RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org. or call 678-318-3647.
