As we begin 2021 and a future that approaches 20 years since 9/11, one very clear imperative moving forward is to AMPLIFY THE VOICES OF YOUTH! To that end we have been joining with youth peace leaders and peace educators around the world. One longtime partner, The Afghan Peace Volunteers, hosts a global monthly call on the 21st/22nd of every month. You are all invited to join a call to be inspired by these young peacemakers and to add your voice:
Global Days of Listening.
We plan to bring more of these amazing young people to you in the near future via our webinar series.
