Join Washington, DC community members to learn more about human trafficking and get involved in the anti-trafficking movement. ** Featured Guest: Sunitha Krishnan ** Sunitha Krishnan is challenging the turned eye of the state that results in dysfunctional safe houses for children rescued from commercial sexual and other exploitation and put into rehabilitative custody of the community. Through her organization, Prajwala, she is playing a facilitative and catalytic role in getting India's government and citizen organizations to jointly manage a slew of protective and rehabilitative services for sexually trafficked children. ** Presentation by Ashoka ** Come learn more about the work of Ashoka in supporting social entrepreneurs and changemakers around the world. Members of Ashoka will talk about their recent online competition awarding grants to leading innovative projects to end human trafficking. ** Invitation for Action in the U.S. ** Find out about an exciting opportunity to organize community members on the East Coast to get involved raise awareness about human trafficking in the 21st century. Do you have an idea, topic, or guest speaker you would like to introduce at future meetups? Contact [masked].

    Our guest speaker, Sunitha, blew me away with the experiences she has been through - truly an inspiration in word and deed. I'm glad that so many people in the community came out to support her and learn how human trafficking is both a global and local issue. I hope we all take her message to heart and start taking action in solidarity and through partnerships.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
