Who We Are
We are students.
We have been told we are the future; we do not agree.
We are the here and now, and we do not like what we see, what we are about to inherit.
We are not waiting on adults to make a better world for us. We are not relying on governments or politicians.
WE are determined to create a better world for everyone – young and old – not tomorrow, but today.
We are stepping up, speaking out, and moving peace forward, one decision and one action at a time. We are creating positive change in our own lives, in our communities, and, together, in our world.
We’re not going to grow up to be the change we want to see in our world; we ARE the change we want to see in our world.
Peace on Earth must be more than a catch phrase; it is a minute-by-minute personal choice. Join us as we declare a peace revolution and create positive change in our lives, our communities, and our world by spreading our message across the globe — friend to friend, neighbor to neighbor, and stranger to stranger.
Join us, and the adults who support us, as we turn the world upside down and lead from the bottom up.
