Sadly, it happens all the time, closer than you think. And because the metro Atlanta area is a big hub for human trafficking, the Roswell Rotary is hosting a "Stop Human Trafficking Now" campaign kickoff on Thursday this week.
According to the club president, Dave McCleary, 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 Melissa - a woman with a compelling story of being trafficked and how Wellspring helped her restore her life - will form a discussion panel at the event.
The goal of the event is to reveal just how prevalent the issue of human trafficking is right here in local communities and what we can all do to help stop it now.
“We are very excited for Rotary to get involved in this and feel we could really help make a difference to Stop Human Trafficking" said McCleary.
