Introducing: Dawn Heath
Topic: Human Trafficking & Internet & Social Media Safety
Join the Movement organizes community conversations about human trafficking specifically, internet safety and social media and how it plays into human trafficking. How we as a community can protect our neighbors, friends, children from predators before it’s too late. Human Trafficking is in all 72 counties in the State of Wisconsin. The Traffickers/Predators are becoming more sophisticated right along with the technology industry. Even our laws can’t keep up with the ongoing changes in technology…but, predators are. Law enforcement can’t do it all and they need the help of communities coming together to assist this battle. Dawn has given presentations all over the state and is happy to come to your congregation to build awareness and help you to improve your safety measures.
About Dawn: Dawn is a mom of three sons with 2 daughters-in-law and Nana to 1 granddaughter and 2 grandsons. Her family is her greatest blessing. Her parents are missionaries who serve at a Wisconsin State correctional facility in S.E. Wisconsin. Dawn has spent her whole life advocating for those in need.
Dawn is the Family and Outreach Ministry Coordinator at Sugar Creek Lutheran Church and serves as the current President of the Elkhorn Rotary Club. Her passion is threefold: for her family, her work at Sugar Creek Lutheran Church and for Join the Movement Events, Inc., educating our community on what human trafficking is and how to protect our neighborhoods. She became aware of this great need for Wisconsin at her Rotary District conference 2 years ago. Since that time Dawn has been organizing large group awareness events that are county wide initiatives and small community conversations. She has spoken in churches, hospitals, support groups, community service organizations, youth groups, college campuses, and libraries. Wherever the need is and a request comes to her, Dawn is dedicated to educating ourselves and our neighbors what we should be looking for and what to do when we see it.
Dawn is now the Rotary District #6270 Anti-Human Trafficking Ad-Hoc Committee Chair and brings education to area business leaders through Rotary International. She also founded and is President of Join the Movement Events, Inc. to stop human trafficking, a 501c3 non-profit with a mission to bring community education at the ground level. She also specializes in social media awareness and internet safety. Dawn is an advocate for victims, helping them with the resources needed to make the changes in their lives. She is also a founding member of the Walworth County Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force.
