peace and conflict prevention/resolution


Our District is entering the 5th year of formally creating a District Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution position, placing this area of focus into prominence and supporting the concept that the five other areas of focus, Water and Sanitation, Economic Development and Community, Child and Maternal Health, Disease Prevention and Treatment, Education and Literacy all contribute to Peace building.
I would like to acknowledge and praise the work of District 5280 Peace Chairs, Mark Ameli, Steve Goldsmith, Manisha Javeri, and Vicki Radel. Their vision and leadership has created a climate in our District to be people of action in the work of peace building and promotion.
Our vision this year includes further support and resources for the Club Peace Chairs in the spirit of District Governor, Joe Vasquez whose theme for the year is “It’s All About the Clubs.” I hope the clubs will make peace the cornerstone of their club’s activities this year. Training and education are an integral part of this area of focus and mediation training, webinars, forums, events are planned for this year.
I look forward to a productive year promoting Peace with the participation of all District 5280 Rotarians who are our Peace Building Force.  I would like to quote the words of Past Rotary International President, Sakuji Tanaka, “And so I ask you all to put Peace Through Service at the forefront of your Rotary work this year, and to commit to a Rotary goal of a more peaceful world.”
