10 reasons to apply for a Rotary Peace Fellowship at ICU

By Lorraine Hayman, May 14, 2019, Published in Rotary International

This summer, I will join the 18th class of Rotary Peace Fellows at International Christian University. Here are my top ten reasons for applying to ICU: #1. Cultural Immersion. ICU is home to the only Peace Center in East Asia. As a student at ICU, I can draw on peace-building traditions from Asia, while becoming a highly responsible global citizen. I will explore a culture that contrasts my own, making connections and building friendships that transcend language and cultural barriers. In August, I will meet local Rotarians and experience language and culture training with other new fellows.

Putting civility back into civil discourse

By David Sarasohn, Illustrations by Joan Wong, Published in Rotary International

The woman sitting at the end of the carefully arranged tables looks as though she would rather be someplace else — maybe at her real estate agency, maybe just with people she knows, people who see the world the way she does. But a friend asked her to come here, and she agreed, and she will carry out her role. “It’s not my notion of a family,” she says firmly, her chin set as she explains the burden of holding conservative views in a liberal town. “It’s my truth of a family. I don’t want my views to be considered hate speech. But I don’t want to celebrate things that I don’t celebrate.”

Rotary Peace Centers Webinar

May 8, 2019, Published in Rotary International

The Rotary Peace Centers Program annually grants academic fellowships to up to 100 peace fellows from around the world. This is Rotary’s most significant peacebuilding program. Within Rotary’s area of focus of Peace, Rotary clubs invest in projects that address the causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources. This webinar will focus on proposed changes and growth of the Rotary Peace Centers and the role of clubs and districts in nominating candidates. Opportunities and strategies for Rotarians, clubs, and districts to support Peace Centers and the Peace area of focus with directed and endowed gifts will be reviewed. The new Legacy Society will be discussed.

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.
