Lucy MeyerLucy Meyer has passionately advocated for the 150 million young people with disabilities around the world – and she loves doing it!!! Join us as Lucy shares her story, and get ready to be inspired by this young woman wise beyond her years.
 
Born with cerebral palsy as a result of oxygen deprivation for five minutes at birth, Lucy has both physical and intellectual disabilities. She has never let her challenges stop her! She works tirelessly to make sure that young people like her, wherever they are around the world, receive quality health and education, and experience the joy of sports and participation in society. She believes that “you are never too young to help children!”

Since 2015, Lucy has served as the Spokesperson for the Special Olympics – UNICEF USA Partnership for young people with disabilities. She has spoken at the United Nations, where she addressed the State Conference on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. She has taken her message of “Acceptance plus Inclusion equals Progress” to countries around the world including Jamaica, Brazil, Azerbaijan, Bosnia Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Kosovo with Special Olympics and UNICEF USA.  

On November 18, 2019, the UNICEF Executive Director, Henrietta Fore, appointed Lucy to be a “Champion” member of Generation Unlimited (a partnership between the United Nations and both public and private sector partners to help young people in the developing world reach their full potential). Lucy’s primary focus is providing a transition for young people with disabilities from school to post-secondary education and the workplace to become contributing members of society. To learn more about Lucy's inspirational work, please visit her website at teamlucymeyer.org

To maximize the health and safety of Rotarians, guests, speakers, staff at the Hotel Nikko (where we meet), and those who may potentially be in a high-risk category for complications due to COVID-19, the Rotary Club of San Francisco REQUIRES all members and guests, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a face covering mask during the meeting except while eating.

The Club believes that these policies are consistent with Rotary's Four-Way Test as well as with the current guidelines of the CDC and the San Francisco Department of Public Health. Thank you.
