Statement from Rotary International

Statement from Rotary International

At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism. Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work.

We have more work to do to create more just, open and welcoming communities for all people.

We know there are no easy fixes and that challenging conversations and work lie before all of us. Rotary’s strength has long been our ability and commitment to bringing people together. We will tap into that strength now as we stand with those who are working for peace and justice. 

Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.

A warm welcome to the 2019-20 Rotary year!  This year Rotary International will launch a new strategic plan whose core message is:
            Together we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Rotary International President Mark Daniel Maloney’s theme will be Rotary Connects the World.  As San Mateo Rotary heads into a new year, we will help implement the new strategic plan and RI President Maloney’s theme by focusing on these key areas:
  • Continuing to provide scholarship support and mentoring to local high school and community college students
  • Increasing our awareness of and participation in international service projects, including micro-credit loans to women in Guatemala, scholarship support for high school students in Belize, hospital-improvement efforts in Lebanon, and climate change reduction
  • Working together to bring additional members into our club
  • Providing opportunities for fellowship and fun throughout the Rotary year
I look forward to working together with you as we unite and take action to serve our local community, connect the world, and enjoy the special warmth of Rotary fellowship!
Here’s to a great year ahead!
