We had 2 high school seniors who were DYNAMIC speakers at club today. Suzie Vo and Catie Jacobson developed a website to teach others about human trafficking. Interestingly, their interest in trafficking began after attending a Rotary Youth Leadership conference. We can all do our part to stop this rampant issue. It affects all communities! teachagainsttrafficking.org
