I’m pleased to announce my District Governor Impact Initiative for the 2020-21 Rotary year. This year, District 5840 will launch the world's first Rotary eClub of Equity and Justice!
As Rotarians, we task ourselves to help solve the world's toughest challenges. Right now, it has become ever clear that many groups here in the United States continue to face inequities and injustices each and every day.  The lack of equity or justice comes with its own set of demands, and at this time, our ears, minds, and hearts are open. We are called to learn, contribute, and educate others within communities near and far.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., once said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” Today, the same could be said about inequity. We're all connected in this circle of life.
I'm asking that Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike join me in helping to bridge the gap of inequities and injustices in our communities.  Regardless of our differences, we must use our time, skills, talents, and resources to elevate all of humankind. 
This new Club will have the following areas of priority:   
  •  Business Ownership
  •  Clean Water
  •  Education  
  •  Healthcare
  •  Housing
  •  Law and Order
