BE A PEACE MAKER
In the summer of 2020, America experienced social unrest and street protests in response to years of systemic racism. There is a saying, "we often fear what we don't understand," and this phrase rings particularly true in discussions of race and racial relationships in America. How do we begin learning when there is so much, we do not understand collectively? The answer - we must take the first step towards educating ourselves and opening our hearts to diverse people.
Be A Peace Maker, Inc., is a nonprofit organization committed to developing "peacemakers" in our society by creating a network of partnerships between organizations devoted to embracing a spirit of racial harmony in our communities. We have partnered with multiple political and faith-based organizations that collectively strive to advance, unify, and plant seeds of peace in our society.
