Review for PeaceJam Foundation, Arvada, CO, USA
Over the last few years, I have had the privilege of attending various PeaceJam events as a chaperone with Pine View School and the consistently fabulous group of young people that are involved with this organization. For anyone who hasn’t experienced a PeaceJam conference firsthand, it’s hard to imagine the overwhelming sense of hope and inspiration that comes from sitting in an audience full of so many bright-minded young leaders, mentors, and educators which come together as a family, by giving back to community. Given the current state of the world and complex challenges presented in 2020, the need for programs like Peace Jam that support, as Rep. John Lewis reminds us, “good trouble, necessary trouble” is more critical now than ever. Through concerted efforts to cultivate a culture of kindness, respect, and radical empathy among students already working for a better tomorrow, PeaceJam IS changing the world.
