National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is recognized each year on January 11. In recognition of this important day, and throughout the month of January, the Ending Human Trafficking Committee of the Rotary Club of San Francisco will host several special events and educational activities. One of the critical aspects of preventing human trafficking is knowing how to spot it and what to do about it.

On January 20, 2021, we are excited to host Laurel Botsford, the Founder, President, and CEO of Wisdom International. She will share a video and some valuable information on how to spot and help prevent human trafficking.

Laurel is a communications professional, convention speaker, conference organizer, advocate, presenter and community mover and shaker. She is building into the fabric of everyday life the skills of preventing human trafficking. From trained volunteer for Shared Hope International in 2014 to founder of Wisdom International: Help2Others in 2018, her commitment has deepened. She collaborates with survivors, tribal leaders, anti-human trafficking coalitions, and key partners against human trafficking. An invitation by the FBI led to her graduating their Citizen’s Academy in 2019. 

She is a trained alternative health practitioner, author of two books on "consciousness" and has a Bachelor of Arts in languages. "Study by Living" half of her life abroad among varied cultures and mindsets blends into a rich understanding of human nature she finds useful today. She is a Paul Harris Fellow and twice Youth Activities Director of the Rotary Club of Terra Linda; a core-member of the Drug Awareness Program, Elks Lodge in San Rafael; and a Board Member of the Friends of the Sausalito Library.

This is a Commitee Meeting of The Rotary Club of San Francisco, open to all Rotarians, visiting Rotarians, prospective members, and guests. The meeting is free. Please RSVP by contacting Kat Ebanks and Join Here on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 just before 12:30 p.m.
