ROTARY HIGHLIGHT

More than 40,000 Rotary members gathered in Atlanta for the Rotary International Convention. Ashton Kutcher, actor and cofounder of Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children and Rotary addressed the global scourge of human trafficking on a panel discussion and discussed how communities can combat it. Gary Haugen, CEO of International Justice Mission, delivered an excellent point that this issue is everywhere around the world. There are survivors back home in your neighborhood and we must educate ourselves about this issue, serve survivors, and encourage local law enforcement to step in.

Learn more about how Rotary and Thorn are working together to fight trafficking, and how you can help. https://www.wearethorn.org/rotary/
