Details: Rotary District 5180 has been awarded the largest Rotary Foundation Global Grant in US
history to create a reproducible, large-scale project in the Greater Sacramento region to
combat human trafficking. This prevention project includes a proven and approved
education program that disseminates education and awareness information to children,
healthcare workers, law enforcement, and educators, to prevent human trafficking. The
program also includes an aggressive advertising campaign which has just launched in the
area.
Human trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world according to the FBI and is
believed to be more than a $150 billion industry. There are an estimated 40 million
people enslaved globally, according to The International Labor Organization. The
Greater Sacramento region is considered to be one of the hotbeds for human sex
trafficking in the United States.
