The District 6420 Task Force Against Human Trafficking was created in 2017. Their tagline, Education for Eradication, states the purpose of the task force. 
Many organizations exist to help victims of slave labor and human trafficking. The task force would like to eliminate the need for such organizations by educating the public so that the causes can be eliminated.
This year, for the first time, the task force joined with Iowa Rotary District 6000 and participated in the world-wide Walk for Freedom Day sponsored by the A-21 Campaign. Participants began on each side of the bridge and met midway. To our knowledge, there were no other bi-state events.
We are tri-state in our task force committee members. Iowa District 6000 is represented by Deanna Jensen, who is also a board member of the Iowa Network Against Human Trafficking and Slavery, and a member of Braking Traffik, Advocacy Coalition. Toni Lucas, who began our task force, is now a member of the worldwide, online special interest Rotary Club to End Human Trafficking, Wisconsin District 5950.
The task force was dormant during Covid but is now re-invigorated with a dynamic group of District 6420 Rotarians. Kathy Trone chairs the committee. Other members are Susan Bursztynsky, Amy Buss, Laura Davis, Julie Gelaude, Kirsten Ivy, Kay King, Lynn Momberger, Lynn Olds, and Ginger Thompson.
Task Force members have received training and have made presentations at district events. The committee is nearing completion of its goal to make a presentation to every club in our district by the end of this Rotary year. (If we have not yet contacted you, please reach out to us and we will get a program scheduled.)
