Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional and community leaders. Members of Rotary clubs provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. There are more than 34,000 Rotary clubs located in more than 212 countries and geographical areas. Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary's main objective is service - in the community, in the workplace and throughout the world.
Since his first encounter with a child trafficking victim 25 years ago, he has devoted my life to fighting this crime against humanity. He has looked into the eyes and into the hearts of hundreds of slavery victims and felt their terrible pain.
To help combat this problem, he is teaming up with a consortium of counter-trafficking organizations within the USA to initiate a 70-day road trip across America to reach out, educate and inform Americans. The objective of this trip is not only to educate and inform the general public but to encourage them to actively join the fight. As part of this campaign, he will be going from city to city with his wife, an award-winning human rights film maker, to speak at churches, libraries, corporations and schools to get this message out.
Members of Rotary support The Rotary Foundation. Funds donated to The Rotary Foundation help others in their own community, their country and around the world. See video below - Rotary "Doing Good In the World."
