January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month:

Human trafficking is the business of stealing freedom for profit. In some cases, traffickers trick, defraud or physically force victims into selling sex. In others, victims are lied to, assaulted, threatened, or manipulated into working under inhumane, illegal, or otherwise unacceptable conditions. It is a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 24.9 million people around the world; see polarisproject.org.

Empower Yolo provides services for human trafficking survivors including safe shelter. There’s also a designated human trafficking advocate who works with survivors providing support, information, resources, and advocacy.  Help us reach more victims – participate in our awareness campaign and make a donation to our human trafficking program any time at empoweryolo.org.

Please join Empower Yolo this month for our Human Trafficking Awareness Campaign to learn more about the issues, raise awareness and support human trafficking survivors. Follow Empower Yolo’s efforts during the month – join us in the dialogue and the movement to help end human trafficking.

Toiletry Drive for Human Trafficking Survivors:

Empower Yolo is hosting a month-long toiletry drive for human trafficking survivors during the month of January.  Please see the most needed items below. Donations can be dropped off at the main office in Woodland or the Resource Center in Davis during office hours. 


Join Empower Yolo for a free online screening of the documentary BOYS – January 6, 2022 at 6 p.m.  

“Sex trafficking is a worldwide epidemic, a tragedy that affects women, men, and children. Men and boys throughout the United States are trapped in modern-day slavery and forced to sell their bodies for sex. While the movement of sex trafficking has brought large awareness to female victims of trafficking, males have largely been overlooked. BOYS seeks to do just that – bring validity to the truth that males are victims of sex trafficking here in the United States. A panel of community experts will follow the film.
