Selma Rotary Club thrives on diversity

December 5, 2019. Written By Jerria Martin, originally published by Rotary Voices.

Diversity is important to my club, and that’s a big reason why I am a member and past president. My club is a second family to me, one that began investing in me all the way back in 2006. As a senior in high school, I received a Rotary Scholarship as part of my club’s annual scholarship competition. The program is just one way my club embraces and seeks diversity. We invite a graduating senior from every high school, public and private, from all neighborhoods and walks of life, to share their leadership and service skills with us. Every senior who is chosen receives a scholarship. I was a recipient of that program. And I knew that Selma’s business and community leaders believed in my vision and were willing to invest in my future. That’s what created in me a desire to be a Rotarian. I knew without a shadow of a doubt that the first organization I’d be joining after returning home from Princeton would be our local Rotary club.

Spread Peace on #GivingTuesday

Published December 2, 2019, by the Rotarian Action Group for Peace. 

The holiday season is quickly approaching. Something about the chill in the air, the shorter days, and the endless festivities help remind us all how to live with love, harmony, and peace. As you prepare to celebrate with your loved ones, we would like to share and reflect on the quote by Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Elie Weisel: “Mankind must remember that peace is not God’s gift to his creatures, it is our gift to each other.” We have an opportunity to act now and celebrate peace together. Here at the RAGFP, we want to make it easy for you to give the gift of Peace this holiday season and on #GivingTuesday.

Artists unite to help The Bahamas rebuild

November 17, 2019. By Julien Believe, Published in Rotary Voices Blog.

Three years ago, I penned “I Believe in You,” along with my amazing team, with one purpose in mind – to inspire and motivate. It is a timeless song for anyone that needs a moral boost or just a little nudge to say, “you matter.” After the devastation of Hurricane Dorian in both Abaco and Grand Bahama, it was only fitting that I release ”I Believe in You” with a few tweaks. My fellow country mates needed help but most importantly they needed HOPE. This song is designed to create a sense of hope, strength and assurance in knowing that we, as a nation, will live up to being strong.

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

Rotary World Peace Conference 2020

July 9, 2019, Published in Rotary World Peace Conference 2020

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.

RAGFP Educational Mission to the Middle East

The purpose of the RAGFP Education Mission is for the Rotarian Action Group for Peace board to learn about the various aspects of the conflict by respectfully listening to and learning without judgment from engaged citizens as well as leaders on both sides to hear their perspectives on the current status and the future of the peace process. 

This educational mission is set to establish a citizen diplomacy approach to conflict where people are learning from people. The group will meet Israeli and Palestinian Rotarians to hear from them about the current challenges and how RAGFP can assist them to advance understanding, goodwill and peace on the ground.

This mission is not to show an affiliation to any group or party. It is simply to identify and collaborate with peacebuilder Rotarians, Rotaractors and Rotary Peace Fellows in the region who can advance peace on the ground.
