Peacebuilders & Pandemics

“We’re all in this together!”

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused emotional and psychological harm, leading to a steep decline in health and well-being. Yet Rotarians – as people of action – know that each of us has the capacity to build peace at home and in our community.

In collaboration with Mediators Beyond Borders, Richmond Rotarian Pierre Thompson designed these inspirational posters combining Rotary’s ideal of service with Mediators Beyond Borders’ four cornerstone messages to enhance individual and community resilience: Build Connections. Repair Relations. Minimize Stigma. Reduce Panic.

Please click any of the links below – or any of the images to the right – to share an example of how you build connections; repair relations; minimize stigma; and reduce panic during the pandemic. This is an interactive, community forum for Rotarians and friends to discuss how we take action to create positive change in this difficult time.

All comments will be moderated. Feel free to share these posters widely!
