Web Sites: Peace Jam
Why I am recommending Peace Jam:
Because the Peace Jam offers an urgent invitation for people to get involved now and because that invitation targets young people who are tomorrow’s ultimate promise.
From the Website:
Youth and Nobel Peace Laureates working together to change the world.
"The mission of the PeaceJam Foundation is to create young leaders committed to positive change in themselves, their communities and the world through the inspiration of Nobel Peace Laureates who pass on the spirit, skills, and wisdom they embody."
What vision of heartbreaking misery, what manner of dire poverty, what degradation of the human spirit must we all see before we stand up and actually commit to doing something about it?
This website is your personal invitation to become part of one of the most exciting youth movements of our time: PeaceJam and The Global Call to Action. PeaceJam is bringing young people together with Nobel Peace Laureates to tackle the toughest issues facing our planet - issues ranging from basic needs, such as access to water, to basic rights, such as social justice and human security. Change starts here, and we are inviting you to become a part of it. How will you answer the call?
