People of Action Summit – Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking worldwide is the second largest criminal activity, second only to drugs. Whether forced labor or sex trafficking, it is in every corner of the United States and your community is not immune to this heinous crime. As Rotarians or members of our communities, we need to be at the forefront of combatting modern-day slavery. Leave with an action plan and a play book for your district or club that will allow everyone to protect their families and community.
August is Membership Month and with that in mind, we are pleased to announce that our District Membership Workshop has been scheduled for August 20, 2022, from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m.  The workshop will take place via Zoom.
This Workshop is intended for Club Presidents, Membership Chairs/Committees, and all Rotarians who want to learn how to help their clubs, and to help Rotary, grow and thrive.

Sharon Schendel is the President of the Rotary Club of Del Mar. She shared on the club's website that for most of her life, she was content to be in the background, taking direction from others. The members of the Rotary Club of Del Mar and the projects they spearhead inspired her to take a leadership role. She shares that every day, members of Rotary Club of Del Mar imagine how they might make the world a better place. She has captured the essence of the club in a video that shows how the Rotary Club of Del Mar's projects are helping enhance their own community, and communities around the world. We are using this video as the club profile for this outstanding Rotary club.  To view the video, please click here.  
We highly encourage Rotary clubs to make use of technology and social media to tell your stories.  Let's spread the word about how we can imagine a Rotary that truly makes a difference. This video is an outstanding example.  

Rotary is where individuals come together to change the world for good.
With over 1.2 million members across the globe, Rotary is the place where business and civic leaders come to share ideas, connect, and get inspired. 
Rotary members are people of action, dedicated to sustainable, impactful change in the communities in which they live and work.
