Joseph, explain how everyday you experience racism. Where is it coming from? Who or what is being Racist?
Rebecca Gould Manhattan

What would be our first step in building a club that is more reflective of the communities in which we live.
Mike Siebert
42:33
Joseph, follow up...how can we as Rotarians in our daily lives combate those "attacks from racism?"

Do you all think it would be easier to start a NEW club that is diverse from the beginning? Rather than changing a club's culture?
Joe Beveridge - Olathe Noon
46:17
Most people in a community don't even know there is a Rotary Club. If they are aware that the community has a club, then they typically don't know what we do or stand for. We need to be more inclusive and continuously invite our local community to join us in our projects and events.

can you speak to retuning peice - what are some examples of practices or methods that would fall short? maybe am example?
Susan Mong

“retaining” not returning
Mike Dodson

Can we have the contacts for Danielle and Joseph so we can continue the dialogue?
trish reedy
48:36
Susan, maybe the prayer at the beginning of our meeting is isolating for someone who isn't Christian. In our club, there is a lot of "in Jesus' name, amen"....
Jacci Leib

^good eye!

Trish, one of the things to consider with prayer is to consider who is praying. IF they are a Christian they are going to pray to Jesus and pray in His name. A Muslim or Jew would be praying under another name. It would be impossible for any religion to pray in the name of all gods. It would not be a real prayer. I dealt with this area when asked to pray at a large event. My choice was to pick another name for Jesus from the Bible and no one knew what I meant and no one was offended. Yet I prayed to whom I pray.

well said sir
Jason Leib

What about those that aren't here? Who don't see the extent of the issue - that only overt racism is racism and institutional racism doesn't exist because it isn't explicitly defined in policies or laws?
Lenet - Lenexa RC
01:02:07
And don't forget Native Americans...
Sarah Donohoe - Lenexa RC
01:02:37
Isn’t Latinx the preferred term today?
Mike Dodson
01:02:43
Is there any dialogue about native americans?
Chuck Udell
01:06:17
Jim, I agree with all you saying and after we attract, then we must engage!
trish reedy
01:06:22
Maybe we should consider getting rid of the Pledge of Allegiance... if I was a POC, I probably wouldn't feel great about pledging allegiance to the country whose systems didn't allow me to do what whites were able to do....
Susan Mong
01:08:50
the Johnson County museum tells our communities story very well - redlining / covenants etc. - I encourage you to engage our staff here to help connect people to learn here locally about the systematic racism that was behind growth of JoCo
Danielle Johnson
