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 

 
Do you know when the first Rotary meeting was held? 
 
Those of you who guessed February 23, 1905, you are correct. The anniversary of this special day in our history is celebrated this month.   February is also Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution Month, so it is a very special month. 

We are now more than halfway through our year of Being the Inspiration to our communities. During this month we can focus on doing something that brings more understanding and peace in our world. 
 
How will you honor the idea of peace this special month?
 
*    Will you consider bring in an RYE student next year, or the year after?
*    Will you embark on an international project to bring clean water, medical equipment, help alleviate hunger or find a club somewhere else who could use your help?
*    Will you consider forming a relationship with a sister club someplace else in the Rotary world to exchange cultural ideas and possibly visit them or engage in a joint project.?
*    Is there some way your club can help educate or support a program that focuses on stopping domestic violence or bullying in schools?
*    Will you commit yourself or club to assist the district Human Trafficking project to help end domestic and international sex trafficking?
 
There are many ways we can all make small contributions to promoting peace as Rotarians and Rotary clubs, and there is no better time than this month to put our focus and energy to this worthy endeavor. This is the birth month of this great organization that fosters peace daily in our clubs through our fellowship and connection to those we honor and the projects we work on in our communities and abroad. 
 
Let’s all be the Inspiration for peace!
 
Yours In Rotary,

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)
