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 

A New Year’s Message from District Governor Jack Arney
 
Our drive to “Be The Inspiration” this term has well-exceeded my most optimistic expectations. We are 6 months into this year with so much to be proud of as well as so much to be grateful for. Our generosity has been noticed not only by our partners but by our Rotary Zone as we have stepped up to raise $130,000+ for the Camp Fire relief so far, in addition to the $15,000 we raised for the Carr fire. 

Our district has developed new business models like the Passport One Club which has been recognized at the highest levels in Rotary.  We have been noticed in our region for our efforts combating Human Traf-ficking., and the list of incredible achievements goes on...we have started community-based Interact clubs and are working to develop community-based Rotaract clubs. Rotary Corp is moving forward to support organized relief efforts for the next disaster. We know that when things are difficult, our district rallies to raise money and jumps in with both feet to help. We have witnessed that in the Gridley and Oroville Clubs and all the clubs that joined them in their efforts to support Camp Fire victims. 

There are so many other things I could share with you that would make you proud of our clubs. 

We have 6 months left in this term. We must continue our good work, continue to help our communities and continue to make the world a better place. 

I ask each of you to recognize and lift up your fellow club members for their hard work. Our only currency in Rotary is the love, respect, gratitude, and recognition we give each other. 

Let’s continue our great actions thus far. There is more to be done, and we can do it together. When we take action we make a lasting change. 

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)
