Please join this Rotary Human Traffic Summit - Offering Hope for a Better Tomorrow - Wednesday, January 27 at 9:00 EST.  
Human trafficking -- whether in the form of modern-day slavery, forced labor in in supply chains, debt bondage, sex trafficking, domestic servitude, or online child sexual exploitation – is a transnational multi-billion dollar criminal activity that the 2018 Global Slavery Index estimates to impact over 40 million men, women and children in over 167 countries on any given day. The U.S. State Department’s 2020 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report recognizes that government must play a role in eradicating human trafficking but “governments cannot succeed alone; actions at the local level play a critical role ...[because] the grinding reality of fighting modern slavery takes place not on world stages, but through the dedicated actions of...individual community members who are often the eyes, ears and hearts of the places they call home.” The TIP Report makes clear that we need to add a 4th element to the traditional 3P Paradigm of Prosecution, Protection, Prevention: Partnership.
Rotary International, composed of community leaders from local chapters throughout the world, is committed to generating these critical Partnerships by fostering the exchange of best practices among its grassroots members, national and local governments, NGOs, law enforcement, business, and individual communities, allowing all of these sectors to learn from one another, thereby multiplying the effectiveness of all. This Summit brings together front-line experts from all of these domains, but its goal is not identification of the problem: it is the design of creative solutions. Participants will discuss what is working and what is not in the fight against human trafficking, with the goal of identifying specific action plans going forward.
