Our membership is made up of students from all walks of life, so it is important we understand their gifts and their struggles. In this spirit, we offer support to our black student members. Black lives matter. Key Club International stands in solidarity with the black community and urges our members to provide support, listen and learn.  In a pivotal time like this, our organization encourages members to create a future in which we actively address the following Key Club objectives: 

  • Prepare for useful citizenship. 

  • Develop a more intelligent, aggressive and serviceable citizenship. 

  • Cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and goodwill. 

We urge our members to use the empathy and leadership skills gained in Key Club to enact change during this time. Here are a few ways you can make a difference:

  • Understand community issues and play an active role in the voting process.
