Calling All Peacemakers! The deadline is April 12th!
The video above is from Karim, a Peace First Prize applicant. The Peace First Prize is your chance to celebrate powerful contributions of peacemakers ages 8-22. The Prize will recognize young peoplefor their compassion, courage and ability to create collaborative change. Through a two-year $50,000 Peace First Fellowship we will invest in their leadership as peacemakers and share their stories with the nation.
Peacemaking is a simple but powerful idea: it's the creative process of engaging with others to make positive and lasting change. Peacemaking can take many forms, from a10-year old girl in a small suburban town who rallies members of her community to create safe parks for kids, to a 21-year old former gang member who turns his life around and started a program to create opportunities for the younger generation in his community.The Peace First Prize will showcase young people who have confronted injustice, crossed lines of difference, and had the courage and compassion to create lasting change. The deadline is April 12th!
