Learn More About The Fight Against Human Trafficking

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

Our Club is part of The Atlanta Rotary Council Against Human Trafficking. We have 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.
