PROGRAM – End Human Trafficking
Deborah Wright introduced today’s speaker, her daughter, Virginia McKenzie. Virginia stated that sharing Rotary with her mom is fantastic!
Virginia discussed the Healthcare Alliance, which has received $28,000 in grants from Rotary and Rotaractors. She gave the club some information about human trafficking:
  • 88% of the victims of human trafficking go through the healthcare system while still being trafficked.
  • Healthcare professionals do not know what sex trafficking looks like and need education in this area.
Some signs of human trafficking victims include:
  • Branding or tattoos
  • Victims are bruised or beaten
  • Victims are accompanied by a hyper vigilant, older male, who insists on providing all of the information and answering all of the questions for the victim
Training is now being given to doctors, nurses, and all medical staff. All eyes are now watching the waiting room dynamic.
The Healthcare Alliance Summit has taken place In January of 2019 and 2020. Over 500 healthcare professionals were trained to recognize the signs of human trafficking.
In addition, over 1000 first responders in the Seattle Fire Department were also trained.
More information is available from the following groups:
Virginia and Greg Lineberry then answered questions from the membership.
Vice President Kari thanked Virginia for her program, and presented a donation in her name to the Boys and Girls Club.
Kari also thanked the visitors and Bell Ringers. She also stated that next week’s program will be Historical Narrative & Novels, presented by Stewart Tolnay
