Florida eClub, Florida, USA
Service Above Self!
The Early Years
Rotary eClub of Florida was chartered on September 30, 2016 after being recommended by Rotary Club of Orlando Dragons of Orlando, FL, USA.
Societal Contributions—Avenues of Service
The flagship project of the Rotary eClub of Florida is Little Free Library.
Additionally, the club jumped into helping the district with the Human Trafficking awareness symposium by designing the H T Signal for Safety cards, translating it into multiple languages, and creating shirts for the program.
- The HT Signal for Safety signs were developed by the Charter President following a symposium for District 6980 on Human Trafficking with The Lifeboat Project, Inc. Fourteen language versions of the signal have been made and she produced a tee shirt for the program. The signs have been distributed worldwide with over 10,000 cards in English and Spanish being distributed at the Rotary International Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, USA in 2017.
Signs are located in album section of the Facebook page.
- YouTube videos were produced and shared, also.
- This one is on the explanation of human trafficking and how to do the signal. Do you need help? Are you being trafficked? Abused? Held against your will? When you are in a safe position and see some that can help you sign H T. Don't do it in the view of your abuser or captor. Block the sign with your body.
- Learn the Signal from PRIPS Riseley. Are you in danger? If you saw this signal would you know what it means? H T for Safety Signal means the person is a subject of human trafficking. Don't risk exposing the person, secretly contact police to help the person. Anyone near them might be the trafficker! Be discrete and safe. Featuring Past Rotary International President's Spouse Juliet Riseley.
- District Designated Funds were used in the RI District Grant Cycle 2019-2020 for permanent public and private signage with training in Central Florida.
- Zoom training and introduction sessions have been conducted with clubs around the globe.
