November 10, 2022, Vista, CA—Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland hosted the North County Anti-Human Trafficking Collaborative meeting on Thursday, November 3, 9 a.m., at United Methodist Church of Vista’s Fellowship Hall at 490 S. Melrose Ave., Vista. Guest speaker was Don Meredith, Rancho Santa Fe Rotarian, who was inspired by the RSF Rotary’s focus on human trafficking. After listening to multiple speakers at weekly Rotary meetings on the topic he became aware of the severity and extensiveness of human trafficking around the world. He wanted to help, and the idea simply came to him in a dream! The Signal! This SOS Signal, a quick hand gesture for victims to let bystanders subtly know they are in distress and that they “Need to Get Help!”
The next meeting is in January. The event is free to the public, and coffee and pastries will be provided. For more information contact:
