Rotary creates environments of peace.
“Many people use the end of one year to reflect on things they would like to accomplish in the coming year. What better resolution than to sow the seeds of peace in 2021?
Peace underscores much of the work that Rotary members do in improving their communities around the world. Rotary’s peacebuilding initiatives seek to create environments where lasting peace is possible. We do this by continually investing in sustainable and measurable peace programs throughout our communities and across the globe; by creating an extensive network of peacebuilders and community leaders dedicated to peace and conflict prevention; and by providing Rotarians with several avenues in which they can actively participate in peacebuilding processes within their communities.
We believe that if Rotarians and concerned citizens mobilize locally to create peace, change can happen globally.”
Meet Ralph Menzel, President of the Rotary EClub of Global Peacebuilders of Virginia. Feel his energy and commitment to taking action to address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, discrimination, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.
As inspiring as Ralph’s commitment to peace is the story of his journey into the Rotary family which began in Germany. You will want to take a listen. Click below.
