When we hear the words “human trafficking,” we tend to think that this is something that happens in big cities.  Sadly this is not true, and with the 401 highway, this crime is big business right here in our community.

Spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Guelph South, local Rotary members have come together to tackle this issue, starting with an awareness campaign. To volunteer with this committee, or for more information, email Debbie Allen at the Guelph South club. 

On the 4th Tuesday of every month, starting on July 27, 2021, you can hear five different presentations about the various aspects of human trafficking – from the organizations that work to create increased awareness to survivors themselves who will share their stories.

We are starting on July 27 with Bob Burnside and Sherri Moir who are with CRY NOT, a voluntary organization based in Orangeville (supported by Rotary) whose mandate is to create awareness of threat, tactics, symptoms and resulting devastating personal effects of Human Trafficking to the greater Dufferin Caledon communities. To register, go to  https://bit.ly/3xXKx7S

Future dates in this Speaker Series are August 24, September 28, October 26, November 30.  Mark your calendars now and plan to join us. This session will be online and free.  

ABOUT CRY NOT:  Compass Rotary Youth – NO Trafficking.

CRY NOT is a volunteer organization formed by two recognized and respected groups within the Dufferin Caledon community. The Rotary Club of Orangeville and Compass Community Church were both moved to action when made aware of the threat of Human Trafficking in their area. Neither party felt qualified to undertake the involved follow-up work that can be required with Human Trafficking victims. Both parties however, did feel strongly about their ability to bring awareness of the threat, tactics, symptoms and resulting devastating personal effects of Human Trafficking to the greater Dufferin Caledon communities.
