mission statement

The Rotary Club of the PNW Ending Sex Trafficking engages its members and the community to work together to end sex trafficking in the Pacific Northwest through the inclusion of survivor leaders as subject matter experts, education, service, fellowship, networking, and skill-sharing. We leverage efforts and resources to build momentum for our cause by maintaining joy, grace, patience, persistence, and levity in the process.

CLUB HiStory


The idea for this club formed from a presentation to Seattle Rotary about sex trafficking locally and was grew in the Seattle Rotary Peacebuilders Committee for many years.  As part of the Seattle Rotary Peacebuilder Committee, we completed several impactful projects, the most successful of which was the Health Care Alliance where 1,000 health care professionals and 1,000 Seattle Fire Fighters received training on sex trafficking identification and how to respond. This project won the best peace project in Rotary Club District 5030 for the Rotary Year 2019-20.  Under the leadership of Virginia McKenzie, the Rotary Club of the Pacific Northwest Ending Sex Trafficking began to meet in 2021 and was officially chartered as a cause-specific Rotary Club on October 3, 2021.
