Be A Champion
There are over 40 million enslaved people, according to Walk Free’s Global Slavery Index. That’s four times more than those taken out of Africa during the 400 years of the Atlantic Slave Trade. Modern slaves, however, are disposable, cheap, hidden from plain sight, and devoid of human rights. Very young children are now in greater danger than ever before as sex traffickers exploit opportunities arising from natural disasters, deprivation, civil conflict, and mass migration.
Help address this global problem and become a RAGAS CHAMPION today. Join us to prevent exploitation and heal affected communities. For whatever you can afford to give, you can become a RAGAS CHAMPION and help FREE THE WORLD.
January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Every year since 2010, month of January has been a dedicated to raising awareness about the different forms of human trafficking, also known as modern slavery, and educating people about this crime and how to spot it. Annually, various organizations celebrate the efforts of anti-trafficking organizations, communities of faith, state and local law enforcement, survivor advocates, businesses, and private citizens all around the world to promote this important cause with help and dedication of the U.S. Department of State which raises awareness on human trafficking domestically and abroad through their U.S. embassies and consulates. The National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, January 2021, culminates in the annual observation of National Freedom Day on February 1, 2021. For more info about National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month visit the Department of State website.

ROTARY International Convention
Starting in 1910 the Rotary convention has combined fellowship with Rotary business and inspired attendees with notable guest speakers and entertainers, workshops, and messages on various critical Global issues from Rotary leaders. Since then the Rotary International continues organizing “Rotary International Conventions” each hosted in a different country, every year. The goal of these conferences is to bring together members of the Rotary International family from around the world and give them a platform to exchange ideas and come together in friendship while trying to choose the most important initiatives to work on together in a year(s) to come.
RAGAS is happy to announce that this year the ROTARY International Convention will be hosted in Houston, TX. It will be a virtual event, streamed Worldwide on June 12-16, 2021.
At the 2021 Rotary International Convention the Rotary Action Group Against Slavery (RAGAS) will be representing their plan and advocating for abolishing modern slavery.
