Welcome to the Rotary Club of Washington D.C.

An Invisible Hatred, Largely Ignored.

We are shaken, yet again by violence against people of color and violence against women. We mourn the lives of 6 murdered women of Asian descent on March 17th

The rampant rise in all hate speech and Anti-Asian hate crime is plaguing our country. Wherever you are from or whatever you look like or believe, we are all one HUMAN RACE.

The Rotary Club of Washington DC and Rotarians worldwide strive to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change. Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.


We can’t ignore racism and the continued suffering.

The work is hard. We, as Rotarians must be committed to change. Racism is not a relic of the past.

Join us and advocate for social justice. We know we can be better than this. We must be. #AAIP #BLM #StopAsianHate

President’s Corner

Our Club Mantra “Transforming Lives Through Service” represents our hands-on commitment to change the world – one person, one family, one community – at a time. This year, the Presidential Platform – CHANGE: Uncomfortable. Necessary. Rewarding – reflects our Club’s position on the daunting challenges we face today which require leadership, voice and action. The Rotary Club of Washington, D.C. is uniquely located in the capital of the United States. The thought-leaders, physicians, business owners and government executives who make up the membership of this Club, present an extensive amount of expertise to lead as well as create safe spaces to listen and dialogue as we navigate the waters of this challenging time of social justice and COVID19.
