Gilbert Rotary Club has established a local chapter of the District 5495 Peacebuilders.  PDG Nancy Van Pelt presides at the District level, with Gilbert Rotarian Diana Tacey as local laison.  Peace is one of Rotary's Six Areas of Focus around the world.  According to the U.N. Refugee Agency's latest report, nearly 80 million people are currently displaced by violent conflict, persecution and civil rights violations--half of them children.  Rotary has an urgent role to play.  Each of the other Areas of Focus--fighting disease, providing clean water and sanitation, improving the health of mothers and children, supporting education and growing local economies--help to stabilize the communities in ways which make peace more likely.
