Presidential Peace Conference
Georgia World Congress Center
Friday afternoon-Saturday morning, 9-10 June | $126.50
Peace is the topic of this special event. We’ll celebrate our successes as we look back at our history of making peace a priority, through our Peace Centers and our work on the underlying causes of conflict: poverty, disease, and illiteracy. We’ll also highlight the roles that Rotarians, Rotary program participants, and alumni have played in contributing to peace and international understanding. And we’ll look ahead to what we might accomplish during the next 100 years.
The program will include internationally recognized keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and networking events that explore Rotary’s commitment to peace. Check back soon for more information.
Dr. Bernice A. King, chief executive officer of The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change and the youngest daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King
