#GivingTuesday: Empower a peacemaker and start a movement
The biggest problem we face today is a pervasive culture of violence. We see it every day in the news. It's in our schools. It's in our communities. And it effects us all. But with this staggering violence comes a new desire to end it. Our newest generation of young people envision a future of compassion; of courage; of working collaboratively. They envision a future of peace. Peace First exists to instill the necessary skills and values to ensure this future. We have a tremendous opportunity to leverage our experience and the power of modern technology to help young people transform themselves into peacemakers, and provide them with the resources, networks and support to lead a movement to put peace first in their daily lives and create a cultural counterweight to violence. By supporting Peace First you are supporting a national movement of 2.5 million young people who want to bring peace to their communities now and into the future. As youth are exposed to violence and injustice daily, we must continue to shape a world where they learn the skills to communicate effectively, resolve conflicts peacefully, and become leaders of social justice.
Please honor a young peacemaker in your life and support Peace First. Empower and peacemaking and start a movement.
