Calling All Rotary Anti-Slavery Superheroes!
The Rotary Action Group Against Slavery (RAGAS) - led by District 6900's own Dave McCleary - will hold a Zoom meeting on December 8 at 9:00 AM Eastern time. You may join using this Zoom link. RAGAS is committed to connect, empower and equip Rotarians to engage their communities to eradicate all forms of human trafficking/modern slavery, locally and around the globe.
The meeting will feature special guest, RAGAS Board Member and founder/CEO of Mekong Club, Matt Friedman. Matt is an internationally renowned expert on modern slavery with over 35 years of experience in the field.
