Rotarians Pave the Way for Peace by Standing Up for Human Rights

August 28, 2018, Published in Rotarian Action Group For Peace

Monday, December 10th, 2018 marks the 70th Anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights. Rotarians wrote the outline for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1943. Rotary's role in the formation of the United Nations helped establish a framework and opened a dialogue between nations that paved a way to peace and support of human rights around the world. As Rotary clubs and districts celebrate the 70th anniversary of this historic document, they also commemorate Rotary's deep, historic relationship with the United Nations.

Peacebuilder awarded for bringing divided US citizens together

By Amanda Menas, November 19, 2018, Published in PeaceNews.com
 

With so much disunity across the United States, it can be difficult to find common ground. But one organization is taking steps to bring people together. After working for 40 years to bring peace around the world, Paula Green co-founded Hands Across the Hills, bringing Liberals and Conservatives together to speak about their differences and similarities. The gatherings allowed the group of around 30 individuals to humanize each other. Green and her organization won the first annual Melanie Greenberg Peacebuilding Award in 2018, at the annual Alliance for Peacebuilding conference, PeaceCon2018.
