Be a peacemaker inc.
As our world becomes more polarized by racial tension and political division, there is a great calling for those who are willing and able to bridge the gap and foster authentic reconciliation and unity. Those who will establish a common ground for communication and understanding, disrupting illusions of false harmony while sowing the seeds of true peace. We call these courageous people Peacemakers.
— how we serve you
Peacemakers Ambassadors are campus students who will undergo a 10-week training series. Participants will attend workshops and seminars where they will receive training in character development, educational and entrepreneurial advancement, social justice, and community engagement. The objective is to prepare the next generation of leaders to make a difference in their families, communities, and careers. Each participant will receive a stipend and after completing the process, they will become certified representatives of the Peacemakers’ mission. We will recruit 12 students from the Atlanta University Center.
We design interactive Racial Reconciliation workshops and online courses to accommodate the culture of your organization. We have successfully facilitated discussions regarding the African American experience, black children and education, and the corporate response to social justice.
We have successfully conducted racial reconciliation workshops with a couple of Atlanta Fortune 300 companies. Our facilitators are experienced experts in their fields, and they bring invaluable wisdom and skill-building resources.
” Life’s most persistent and urgent question is “What are you doing for others.”
