Where's the Peace?
'Where's the Peace?' is an on-going awareness project and the umbrella to all of the programs and projects within the foundation. Seeking ways to educate the general public on the problem of crime and it's affect on all involved, with a focus on facilitating healing in the victims and repairing the harm done as a result of a crime. Recognizing that crime is a community problem and requires a community based solution. Spreading a message of non-violence, embracing peace and teaching forgiveness is paramount to our goal. Part of reaching out to youth and young people at risk, we recruit and encourage their participation in the creation of a musical CD promoting peace and encouraging others. Ultimately our goal is to write, direct and produce a PSA.
