and Volunteer Recognition
By: Samantha Waldron, Vice President, Whitehouse Rotaract club.
Thank you to everyone for this US President’s Volunteer award. I am absolutely honored to be the Vice President of Rotaract NJ Whitehouse and to work on these projects all year round.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are the critical components and core values of social impact, rather than peripheral tasks, to ensure a just and equitable world where our social group identities do not predict our life outcomes. At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, fair, and inclusive culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change. By fostering creativity, fresh perspectives, and understanding, we are breaking barriers and unlocking significant knowledge in the minds of forward-thinking pioneers who can solve the world’s most challenging intersectional obstacles.
Exposure to environmental harms is unequal; disadvantaged communities are subject to disproportionately higher environmental and public health stressors, including pollution from numerous industrial, commercial, and governmental facilities located in those communities. As a result, they suffer from increased adverse health effects.
The Native Rain Garden of Interfaith Peace is a bioretention carbon sink that treats polluted surface runoff by increasing rain infiltration and reabsorption of water into the soil while simultaneously being an intersectional project advocating for religious understanding and peace. This venue for non-profit projects and activities provides an inclusive environment where everyone can appreciate the natural environment.
As an Environmental Remediation Scientist and Rotary volunteer, this project is one of the most valuable, measurable, and attainable solutions to help the local community and the planet. This project is just the beginning of my involvement with this branch of Rotary, and I look forward to many more projects for many more years.
Thank you, everyone, for sustaining our initiatives to support education, mental and physical health, community services, and social impact. Every day is a beautiful opportunity to make a positive impact, and with your continued help, together, we will attain world peace.
