The Ugly Truth brings attention to human trafficking / Kinetic Worldwide

You can DO SOMETHING.

HumanTrafficking...It's NOT OK. You can DO SOMETHING today to fight it.  Check out the contact info below for more information on how you can help the District in their fight against human trafficking.

District 5180 just received official notice by The Rotary Foundation of a global grant award to combat sex trafficking in the greater Sacramento area.  With the grant award and other local funding, the District has $340,000 to fight human trafficking in our community through two components:  education and public awareness.  The sex trafficking education program is aimed at 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th graders and will be conducted by 3Strands Global Foundation using their PROTECT program (http://3strandsglobalfoundation.org/get-involved/education/). 
 
The public awareness piece will be conducted by the Voices and Faces Project in Chicago through their "The Ugly Truth" campaign (http://www.voicesandfaces.org/).  This 3-month outreach campaign will roll out in the spring to help bring awareness of the problem, considered modern day slavery, to our area.
