Empower Yolo Events

January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month:

Human trafficking is a crime that involves exploiting a person for labor, services or commercial sex. In California, there is an increasing need to provide more assistance and care for the victims and survivors of these heinous crimes.

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.
