The District has been closely following and monitoring the protests unfolding in various cities of the United States in response to the killing by law enforcement, of George Floyd.  Governor Mahbub Ahmad said, "We cannot remain indifferent to what is happening in our communities.  Rotary as an organization is committed to the elimination of all forms inequality and discrimination.".
 
The District Governor String discussed the situation and a diverse team of Rotarians drafted a statement to be published on behalf of the District.  Since it is a statement of policy, Governor Mahbub asked if members of the Governor String would join him in signing on to the Statement.  DGE Mary Shackleton, DGN George McKinnis and DGND Martin Schulman unanimously agreed to jointly sign the statement.
