TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month and Empower Tehama, a social services agency in Red Bluff, is hosting a seminar on how technology and trafficking are related.

The most common trafficking in Tehama County is sex trafficking and at the seminar, a recent survivor of human trafficking will share their story.

"Human trafficking is a global problem where exploiters use force and cohesion. Men, women and children are victims of human trafficking, and this type of trafficking is happening in rural communities," said Brookelyn Stafft, a victim advocate from Empower Tehama.

The online safety seminar on human trafficking and technology will be held on Thursday, Jan. 30 at 5:30 p.m. at the Red Bluff High School's performing arts center, with doors opening at 5 p.m.

In 2019, the agency served 24 victims, most of whom were children.

It's been a warm and windy day for northern California with isolated showers breaking out over the higher terrain. We aren't done with the windy weather quite yet, but a quieter and warmer pattern is coming soon.
