Social Justice Statement from our District Governor

Today we are amid a reckoning again — a reckoning around racial injustice and the long history of violence against people of color in our state and in our country.  We have faced this moment before.  This is a serious moment at a time of pandemic unprecedented in a hundred years. It has consequences for who we are as people, and for our institutions.

We face many challenges to our shared humanity now – the pandemic and its personal and economic consequences – and the continuation of racial injustice. For 400 years, this country has had a complicated history of serious, endemic socio-economic unfairness that some institutions, including some in law enforcement, have not humanely addressed

Because Rotary represents our common aspirations for human dignity, peace, and equality, there is an opportunity for us to increase our peace and reconciliation and education and economic development projects. Rotary already sponsors many organizations that are dedicated to alleviating poverty, a key factor of inequality.  With the support of our Club members we can redouble our efforts at addressing inequitable justice.  Calling out completely unacceptable violence against African Americans, including the killing of George Floyd, is only part of what we can do.

Please reach out with your concerns and suggestions. The District Leadership Team and I are listening.
