ROTARY CLUB OF 

COMMUNITY ACTION AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING (CAAHT)
 
WELCOME

The Rotary Club of Community Action Against Human Trafficking (CAAHT) was officially Chartered by Rotary International on January 29. 2021. It started with a meeting in 2019 organized by Patti Mellard to discuss  human trafficking and what Rotarians can do to provide resources and support legislation to assist victims facing extraordinary challenges. Since that initial meeting, we built a Rotary Club with a primary focus on education, advocacy and resources related to human trafficking.
 
Rotarians and community members work in collaboration our local, state, national and global experts to make a difference and develop potential solutions while connecting with each and having difficult conversations. 
 
We invite you to attend our e-meetings held every first and third Tuesdays at 12:00 Central Time. Together we can fight against this injustice and put an end to human trafficking.

Rotary and the United Nations have a shared history of working toward peace and addressing humanitarian issues around the world.

During World War II, Rotary informed and educated members about the formation of the United Nations and the importance of planning for peace. Materials such as the booklet “From Here On!” and articles in The Rotarian helped members understand the UN before it was formally established and follow its work after its charter. 

Many countries were fighting the war when the term “United Nations” was first used officially in the 1942 “Declaration by United Nations.” The 26 nations that signed it pledged to uphold the ideals expressed by the United States and the United Kingdom the previous year of the common principles “on which they based their hopes for a better future for the world.” 

 

Every hero has an origin story. â€śI was 10 years old when the entire journey started,” explains Binish Desai. It began with a cartoon called Captain Planet, an animated TV series from the 1990s about an environmentalist with superpowers. Desai can still recite the show’s refrain: Captain Planet, he’s our hero / Gonna take pollution down to zero! â€śThat tagline stuck in my mind,” he says. “I wanted to do something to help Captain Planet.”
