We see violent incidents thousands of more times now than we did 20 years ago and yet we are living in the most peaceful time in human history. The Rotarian Action Group for Peace is working for the purpose of advancing peace and preventing wars throughout the world.
Rotary’s efforts in the area of peace cover a wide range of needs and Rotary makes amazing things happen. View the video below to learn more. Here are a few highlights:
Improving quality of life.

Raising awareness of bullying.
Rotaract clubs in the Philippines conduct anti-bullying campaigns in schools to teach children how to handle conflict peacefully from an early age.
Protecting domestic violence survivors and their families.
The U.S. state of Louisiana has the fourth highest incidence of death caused by domestic violence. Local Rotary members met this issue by helping a shelter provide food, clothing, legal advocacy, and counseling to over 500 women in one year.
