Keokuk Peace Letters, 1931: Nationalism, Then & Now

Updated: Jan 5, 2022

The Rotary International theme of Feb. 2021 is "Peace & Conflict Resolution". This is a topic that ties closely into our work with the Keokuk Peace Letters, 1931-2021, and we invite you to forward our resources to the current president for upcoming meetings.

Included in our resources is a fantastic 21-minute video program, which reflects the challenges Democracies faced worldwide nearly 100 years ago that are still relevant today, while still discussing the role of Rotary in this current world climate: "The Keokuk Peace Letters, 1931-2021 - Nationalism: Then & Now".

21-minute video for your meeting

The Keokuk Peace Letters, 331 pages, were discovered by Tony Conn (RC Keokuk, IA, USA) in 2016 in a bank safe and have since been published. The timeless letters, written as responses from Rotary Clubs around the world to a humble typewriter in Keokuk, IA, are still as important as they were and can help people all around the world strive for connection, peace, and conflict resolution. Additionally, you and your friends are cordially invited to our Rotary Peace Conferences.
