1-2-1 Contact

With the help of a brave Iraqi high school teacher, Brooklyn educator Bruce Wallace opened correspondence between American students and their Iraqi counterparts in March, 2004 in an effort to give a face to those living in war. The mission of 121Contact is twofold: first, to educate American youth about the realities and consequences of choosing violence as a means to political ends, and second, to lend social and material support to those directly affected by political violence. Excerpts of student letters are at http//www.121Contact.typepad.com
