ENDING HUMAN TRAFFICKING STARTS WITH OUR TEACHERS
 
Rotary Club of Community Action Against Human Trafficking (CAAHT) is hosting a virtual event, “Human Trafficking Summit: Educators Role in Preventing Human Trafficking,” on Saturday April 10, 2021 from 9:00AM-12:00PM (CT).
 
Human trafficking is prevalent everywhere, often unreported, and many victims are under 18 years old. Educators build trusting relationships with students. Usha Reddi, President of Rotary Club of Community Action Against Human Trafficking (CAAHT) stated, “Educators are uniquely positioned to teach children to recognize human trafficking dangers and how to seek help if they find themselves or others in traumatic situations.”
 
The event is for school board members, administrators, school counselors, teachers, student teachers, teacher training program administrators, before and after school program directors, parents and anyone involved in education. The event spotlights two groups of panelists with a focus on legislation, social media, school resources, and curriculum. The event is sponsored by Kansas Association of School Boards, Kansas National Education Association and MB PILAND.
 
Registration is required. Go to Rotary CAAHT and register today.
 
District 5680 PDG Andrea Krauss arranged with Dr. Marci Nielsen, who is spearheading the Rollout of Covid-19 vaccines in Kansas, to be interviewed by Sue Tirukonda, President of the Rotary Club of Wichita. That highly informative Webinar on March 10th has been recorded for your use.
 
The video includes Dr. Nielsen’s scientifically backed answers to very timely questions about vaccines and other proven ways to beat the Pandemic. It is HIGHLY TRUSTWORTHY INFORMATION. 
 
Only 45 minutes long, IT IS A PERSUASIVE RESOURCE for use as Club Programs and Community Forums.
 
As Dr. Marci stresses to us, one of the most effective things we can do to support the vaccination efforts is to be vaccinated ourselves, as soon as it’s our turn.  And we need to let others know we have, without significant side effects. 
 
Till then, to bend the curve further, keep social distancing and keep wearing masks to protect those who can’t be immunized (infants, people with compromised immune systems and unimmunized older folks).  We can't afford to let up now - we've come too far and there's too much at stake!

This year’s PETS is entirely virtual and launched on February 21. It is an exciting series of learning opportunities. This conference is full of valuable information, great connections, and engaging speakers.
 
This year’s Rotary International President-elect Shekhar Mehta introduced his theme - “Serving to Change Lives.” This theme will be the cornerstone of the 2021-22 year. Additionally, we will hear from RIPE Shekhar about his vision for Rotary in a live, interactive session on Friday, March 26.
 
We have an excellent virtual program lined up. We congratulate our President Elects for being selected as club Presidents for the upcoming year and look forward to working together to make the 2021-22 year truly a year of Serving to Change Lives.
