At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism. Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work. We all have work to do to create more just, open, and welcoming communities for all people. We know there are no easy fixes and that challenging conversations and work lie before all of us. Rotary’s strength has long been our ability and commitment to bringing people together. We will tap into that strength now as we stand with those who are working for peace and justice.  Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change. 

We recognize that Rotary can play an important role in our communities in addressing the inequities that exist in education, access to medical care, job opportunities, justice, food security, and more. Every year we support projects that work to address such inequities, and we invite our community members to join us as we work together to do good in the world. Join us on October 22 to be a part of the conversation.
