What is Rotary?
Statement of Affirmation
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. - Martin Luther King Jr.
 
What we are currently witnessing is borne from a long history of systematic racial oppression that perpetuated discrimination and suppressed generational wealth. This condition has permeated our society for centuries and has created economically depressed pockets within our communities. An injustice has sparked a reckoning, and today we face that reckoning even as we navigate the effects of a global pandemic and economic crisis. Violence has no place in this conversation, but all Americans must listen to the voices raised in protest and take action.

Rotary has served the needs of our area for more than 100 years, and we intend to learn from this pain and help lead our communities on an unwavering path to affirming every citizen’s unalienable rights to equity, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  As Rotarians, we support peaceful protest against injustice and oppose all inequalities within our great nation. This is in keeping with Rotary’s focus on Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution to enhance the capacity of individuals and communities to transform conflict and build peace.

Rotary is not a political organization and will continue to serve the community and strengthen the ties that bind us together as one human race. Rotarians live by a code and hope all will consider these questions in every action. Of the things we think, say or do:

1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

District 5495 (northern central AZ) is working on a Rotary Foundation Global Water Grant to provide homes on the Navajo Nation with inside running tap water.  There are over 200,000 Native Americans living on 25,000 square miles of land with 40 percent without inside tap water and/or a toilet along with 44 percent of the children in poverty. 
 
It is estimated that the average American home consumes 100 gallons of water per day while the average Navajo home consumes seven (7) gallons per day.  Or putting it another way, todays toilet uses 3.5 to 5 gallons per flush. So, two (2) flushes per day can exceed a day use of water. And what about: Laundry? Bathing? Cooking? Having a glass of water?
 
Many of these people, our Arizona neighbors, presently have their water delivered into 50 gallon holding barrels in their yards by a water truck and then into the home by small container. Our goal is to install underground cisterns which pump running tap water into or selected homes (need-based) at a cost of $4,500 per home.  The homes are located within a 70-mile radius of Thoreau, New Mexico which is close to Gallup, New Mexico.
 The District Global Grant is working with with DigDeep which supplies and installs the total water system at each home. The water system consists of a 1,200 gallon in ground cistern, electric pump, sink, solar panel, battery, filter, heater and gray water leach field.

Moe Cougher with Lenexa Rotary and Olathe Noon Rotary set up another great packaging event with Heart to Heart International. Our District 5710 and Clubs already donated over $38,000. This is the second Rotary hands on packaging event. As with our last event we had great participation from Overland Park, Ambassadors of West Kansas City and Western Johnson County. We also had Lenexa's in-bound exchange student Elvira Gonzalez Acosta from Canary Islands and members of the Lenexa Community Corps.
