Diversity issues

Our Compassionate Solution:

To solve this injustice of Racial Injustice
we will address Lack of Diversity Awareness

Our Project Plan:

Goals

  • Our goal is to break down barriers and have people experience raw and authentic diversity

We will increase my / our compassion by...

Trying to cater to all diversity groups and being empathetic with their beliefs, cultures, race and morals

How will you show courage?

We will show courage by Standing when people want us to fail, persevering through the tough times and addressing the issues on Racism with maturity

How will you collaborate with others?

We will get groups of Different Cultures e.g Religious Leaders, Small businesses, Important persona to bring their ideas and help out

How will you know you are moving in the right direction? (What are specific ways you can measure your impact?)

When people start getting interested. When groups volunteer to help out.

Hi Esther!

Thanks so much for posting this project. The respect for diversity and the promotion of tolerance and acceptance across differences is at the core of a peaceful world. I am glad you are taking action to ensure that young people see diversity as their collective strength.

I would like to know if you have decided on the specific area of diversity that you would like to focus. The respect for diversity happens in different areas including healthcare, schools, the workplace, and more. If you haven’t decided yet, you can go to https://www.peacefirst.org/choose-injustice (a great resource that guides you on how to choose!)

I'm excited to support you however possible.

Hi Esther!

How is everything going? I am commenting here for two reasons :) First, we are so glad to have you in our community! Supporting you and getting to know your ideas to solve racial injustice has been such a fantastic process.

Second, you are so close to getting a mini-grant! Actually, you have only one step left to get the funding. I invite you to fill out and submit the budget template so we can send the mini-grant your way.

If you have doubts on how to fill out the budget template, let me know! I will be happy to help. You can also check our budgeting and planning tool here https://www.peacefirst.org/resource/plan-3-planning-and-budgeting.

We are hoping to see you back on the platform soon!

Best,
Andrea

Hi Esther,

My name is Tahmid, I am the new Fellow in Residence for UK and Europe. I am in charge of supporting projects across the UK and Europe.

Being a young leader myself, I know exactly how challenging it can be to start and manage a peacemaking project. I also understand how transformational of an experience tackling an injustice can be for your development as a leader and in challenging an unjust world.

I am exceptionally proud and excited to see that you have got your teeth into tackling an injustice by beginning to submit your project.

Peace First is here to help in many different ways! In particular, your amazing project will be supported with a mini-grant of $250 as well coaching and support from myself.

I am really looking forward to seeing you complete your application. You are just a few steps away from receiving the mini-grant.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask!

Looking forward to hearing more about your project.

Best,

Tahmid
