Sammamish Rotary will be holding a free community event featuring Washington State Supreme Court Justice Gonzalez at CWU-Sammamish.  As part of Rotary International’s peace initiative, Sammamish Rotary will be hosting several community events such as speaker series and installing peace poles in the city in partnership with community organizations.

Justice Gonzalez will discuss his experience as a Rotary Fellow as well as promoting inclusion in our community while considering freedom and the rule of law. 

Sammamish Rotary is hosting this event in partnership with Central Washington University. University President James L. Gaudino says he was honored to have CWU-Sammamish selected by the Sammamish Rotary to host Justice Gonzalez’s presentation. Gaudino points out that this event and Rotary International’s focus on promoting peace both correlate with CWU’s commitment to advocating civil discourse and increased mutual respect. 

After the presentation by Justice Gonzalez, a question-and-answer session will be held.  Attendees can also meet with local organizations who actively promote peace in our community

Steve Danzey, president of Sammamish Rotary says, “Many think of peace as the ‘cessation of hostilities.’  That’s one way to look at it, but as we see what’s going on in the world around us we know there’s more to it than that.  Peace has to be actively pursued, built, nurtured, and sustained. This event is an attempt to do just that—pursue, build, nurture, and sustain peace right here in our community.  The Sammamish Rotary Club invites you to join us, Justice Gonzalez and others in our community to an evening of peace-building.”
