Atlanta Corporate Awakening
Every once in a while brutal facts surface that rattle us out of our comfort zone and compel us to action. Atlanta’s Corporate Awakening is designed to compel such action. For the sake of our city, our organizations and our children we will respond and you and your organization can help lead the charge.
In its most sanitized description, it is human trafficking. All of the things that make Atlanta great also make us a prime target of those who wish to exploit our children in the most degrading fashion. Our penchant for sports, our busiest airport, our growing economy, our leading technology, our interstate corridors, our booming convention and hospitality industries and our diverse community also make us fertile ground for unspeakable human behavior. As a result the FBI has named Atlanta as one of the top U.S. cities for human trafficking.
Those who are deeply involved in this fight will tell us Atlanta is a hub of human trafficking. Nearly 290 million dollars changes hands every year in our city due to this illegal activity. The average age of those forced into human trafficking is 11 – 14. Last year over 300 children in Georgia were rescued with half of those coming from Atlanta. Sadly, this is barely a dent as many more remain enslaved.
SHRM-Atlanta, the Atlanta chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management, is hosting Atlanta’s Corporate Awakening at the Georgia World Congress Center on March 2, 2016. We would like you to join with us as a partner. It is the type of event with which you will be proud to be connected. It’s more than just a large gathering with an aim of over 2,000 of Atlanta’s leading business leaders. It’s a catalyst for awakening the Atlanta business community to the reality of human trafficking in our city and demonstrating what corporations and the business community can do to protect our children and rescue adolescents, teens and young adults out of this immoral industry.
This Corporate Awakening will be something special and we would be delighted to have your participation joint partnership with SHRM-Atlanta in this great cause.
Thank you for your consideration,
SHRM-Atlanta Incoming President
