Welcome to the Rotary District 5180 Website!

Rotary is a leadership organization made up of local business, professional, and other community members. Rotary District 5180 has about 40 clubs and encompasses the Sacramento, Sutter, Yuba County with parts of Butte, El Dorado, Placer, and Yolo counties.

We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships, and through that, we’re able to help our communities to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, and promote peace under the motto Service Above Self. 
 


 

 

Governor's Message 

 
 
Rotarians, 

May is important for three key reasons, each of which I would like to have a brief, one-way conversation about in this month’s message. 

First, May is Youth Services Month for Rotary. 

Having just completed the four regional Speech Contest finals, how can we all not be proud of our youth? Are you as inspired by their hard work, their talent, and their courage as I am? These kids are amazing, and they are part of our future. We have 12 kids living abroad this year and 12 kids living here from countries all over the world. We give out scholarships and send 300 kids to our life-changing RYLA camp from District 5180 and 5190. What else can we say about our new community based Rotaract club and our Teen Center based Interact club and all the Interact clubs who do great things in our local high schools. 

Did you know this year we developed a new Youth Protection Policy to protect our kids and ourselves? We created a Youth Protection Committee bringing new voices from diverse perspectives.  

How about the over 30,000 kids who were educated because of our Human Trafficking program? 

Our commitment to youth in our district is tremendous and something we should all be proud of! 

May is also the month for our One Day District Conference and district project. We get to celebrate our achievements as Rotary clubs and understand at a deeper level how much we embraced our theme this year, “Be the Inspiration.” 

Together we get to thank our club and district leaders and show our gratitude to each of them for leading us this past term. Our servant leaders this year did so with enthusiasm and love in their hearts, and I will remember them always as the best group of club presidents this district has ever had. Their contributions, along with each Rotarian in this district, should be celebrated, and we get the chance to do just that when we assemble as a Rotary district on May 18th in Citrus Heights. 
Be the Inspiration!
 
Yours In Rotary,
 
P.S.  Join me for fun, fellowship and frivolity at the One Day District Conference!

District 5180 Human Trafficking Project

In 2011, President Obama issued a Presidential Proclamation designating each January to be National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. The anniversary of this proclamation became known as National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, which is held on January 11th each year.  

 

Slavery was officially abolished in the US in December 1865 by the 13th Amendment, however, its forms still exist to date. The US is the source, transit and destination country for modern slaves: children, women and men.

 

Whether from another country or the US, they are all subjected to injustices of human trafficking, including sex trafficking, forced labor, involuntary servitude, and forced marriage. 

 

Rotary District 5180 jumped in to help with this issue by creating an initiative, with funding from The Rotary Foundation and Rotarians locally and globally, to provide human trafficking education to our youth in schools and to reach the public with an outreach campaign.  

 

If you or someone you know is being trafficked contact the National Human Trafficking Hotline at call 1-888-373-7888 or text BeFree (233722)
