WELCOME TO ROTARY DISTRICT 5500 IN SOUTHERN ARIZONA

Statement from Rotary International About Tolerance for Racism

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 have more 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.

The year 2020 has been one for the record books. It has been all-things-COVID, which back in January was something the vast majority of us had never even heard of. Technology has certainly been beneficial for Rotary Club meetings. Our whole world has been shaken, but for the most part, we are all learning to cope.District 5500 Rotary clubs have done an extremely good job with projects such as Handbags for Hope, online auctions, virtual runs, and games for fundraisers, in spite of this situation. Rotary clubs are “teaming up” and working together on projects and fundraisers. As they say, “teamwork makes the dream work”.
