The most successful and sustainable Rotary service projects tend to fall within one of the following six areas of Focus:<br/>Peace and conflict prevention/resolution.<br/>Disease prevention and treatment.<br/>Water and sanitation.<br/>Maternal and child health<br/>Basic education and literacy.<br/>Economic and community development.<br/>As Rotarians, we support many projects in the United States and around the globe. <br/>One of our biggest challenges is the continuous battle against pay-to-play politics. <br/>An example would be:<br/>It’s hard to address environmental and climate change issues when lobbyists are spending billions of dollars on local and national elections. Most of the people I speak to and work with from different political parties all agree that we need to take decisions out of corporate control and place them back in the hands of the people.<br/>This is why it is so important for Rotarians, business leaders and individuals to add their voices to those of millions of other Americans calling for a 28th amendment to limit political spending.
We citizens have lost our voice to the highest bidder as a result of the unlimited corporate political spending sanctioned by the U.S. Supreme Court. The 28th Amendment is crucial for restoring America’s democracy and protecting us from plutocracy. I’m excited to join the movement to pass the 28th Amendment and return power to the American people.”
