President Ces Butner called our 5,320th “Civic Thursday” meeting order and welcomed all of our Zoom guests.
Fred Mackay presented the thought for the day and suggested that after a difficult 2020, we should all strengthen our ties as humans in 2021.
President Ces led the attendees in reciting the Rotary Club of Oakland vision statement. He then shared a slide with the Rotary Foundation giving a "Thermometer." Seventy-two percent of club members have donated to the Rotary Foundation to date. Ces urged all members to donate so that the presidential challenge donation of $50,000 will kick in.
Winter Williams introduced Tinisch Hollins, associate director of Californians for Safety and Justice, and Oakland Rotarian Courtney Ruby, City of Oakland Auditor. The panel, moderated by Winter, engaged in a discussion of criminal justice reform.
