5 Ways to Celebrate Human Rights Day

By the Rotarian Action Group for Peace. December 10, 2019. 

Today is Human Rights Day, the 71st anniversary of the UN's adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UHDR). The 2019 theme for Human Rights Day is Youth Standing Up for Human Rights. We want to educate youth on the rights they were born with, empower them to raise their voices, and help them engage a wide range of audiences to promote human rights issues. To enhance an ecosystem for peace worldwide, it is essential for youth to be activated in the protection and promotion of human rights. Here are 5 ways to celebrate Human Rights Day with the RAGFP.

Tell RI Trustees to add the Environment as a Rotary Area of Focus

January 27, 2020. Tell RI Trustees to add the Environment as a Rotary Area of Focus. 

It's time to add a new Rotary Area of Focus. Help the Environmental Sustainability Rotarian Action Group (ESRAG) tell Rotary International Trustees to add "Ensuring Environmental Sustainability" to Rotary's Six Areas of Focus. Because all life on Earth relies on the health of our environment, the RAGFP supports ESRAG's position that Rotarians cannot fully serve humanity and peace if Rotary does not also focus on the wellbeing of the planet.

My mother’s dream

September 13, 2019, By Reem Ghunaim, Published in Rotary Voices

I am a Rotary Peace Fellow from Palestine. My mother is a Palestinian refugee who fled her home with her family in 1948. My father’s entire village was displaced for two weeks in 1967. In fact, nearly half of my family are Palestinian refugees. I was born and raised in Tulkarem, home of two refugee camps that still exist from the Nakba of 1948. One camp is beside my former high school in the middle of downtown. The other is located at the Eastern entrance of my city. This refugee camp is the first thing I see every time I return home to visit my family. Read More

The mission of the  World Peace Conference 2020 is to bring together experts with solutions to major issues that are occurring in our personal lives, homes, schools, businesses, and communities, not just in Southern California, but, also, around the world. We are inviting leaders from health care, academia, government, public safety, religions, business, and communities to meet together to share the solutions presented by experts. The format will allow for action plans to be developed such that real and measurable actions can be undertaken when attendees return home. In addition, the conference will showcase learnings and positive change that have occurred in the four years, since the Rotary World Peace Conference 2016.
