After Bill Riley of the Roswell Rotary Club offered a moving presentation in May 2012 regarding preliminary efforts to combat the commercial sexual exploitation of children, East Cobb Rotary entered an immediate commitment to financial support and attendance at awareness meetings. One club member continued through a process of speakers bureau training, commitment to the work, and so far this Rotary year contributed 44 volunteer hours toward ending Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) through work with the Georgia Cares speakers bureau. Another club member has joined the same speakers bureau this year.
Multiple announcements were made at weekly club meetings regarding the Safe Harbor amendment vote on the November 2016 ballot, and its safe to say that almost 100% of club members voted "Yes" to provide funds from perpetrator fines for recovery treatment of Georgia children who have been rescued from sex trafficking.
