Improving Race Relations: What's It Going to Take?

The black community has tried every way possible to be peaceful and patient regarding equity, human rights, and to be heard. What we are seeing now is the result of many years of frustration and waiting for systems to correct themselves. So the question we're faced with is, "What’s it going to take? What will our society and our country need for change to occur?"

As a retired Seattle Seahawk player, high school football coach, sports radio talk show host, and director with Special Olympics North America, Ray Roberts is no stranger to leadership. The social unrest, along with his own personal stories of discrimination, have served as a catalyst to direct his leadership skills to this critical issue.

Ray brings his passionate message and call to action at a time when so many are wondering, "What's it going to take?"

Our Commitment to Social Justice 

In response to the recent acts of violence against Black Americans across the United States, the Rotary Club of Seattle determined it was time to document our position on the continued struggle against racism towards all people of color in our society.  The Rotary Club of Seattle is proud of our rich history of work on diversity and inclusion and was one of the first Rotary clubs in the world to welcome women to join as full-fledged members.  Guided by our values and beliefs, we strive to foster an environment where every member of our club is able to thrive because of our differences, not in spite of them.  In that spirit, we will continue to do the work necessary to become active allies of those who are victims of racism.  Our position is articulated in these documents, approved by the Board of Directors at their August meeting.
