Human trafficking is right in our back yard. Today’s speakers will focus on two main needs:  a holistic education program that creates awareness to prevent human trafficking and the establishment of an Assessment Center for each rescued victim, followed by a referral to the appropriate local non-profit partners, government agencies, and healthcare workers.

Bob Deering is a certified public accountant with Pomares & Co., LLP in Sacramento, CA. He joined the Rotary Club of East Sacramento in May 1985 and served this club as president in 1996-97.  In 2012-13, Bob was the District Governor for District 5180. He will talk about how District 5180 became involved in the fight against human trafficking.

Ashlie Bryant began her journey to combat human trafficking when a friend’s 17-year-old daughter was taken from a grocery store in her sleepy Sacramento suburb. She is the co-founder and President of 3Strands Global Foundation. In 2011 Ashlie created and oversaw a human trafficking education program designed to educate students at the middle school, high school, and university levels. In 2016 Ashlie expanded the 3Strands Global reintegration program to include domestic opportunities. The goal is to reintegrate survivors or those at risk for trafficking into sustainable jobs. Ashlie holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations and French from University of California, Davis.
