Letters with Love
A Peacemaking Project by Jenny W.
What is the injustice we are solving?
We are a group dedicated to showing gun violence victims that they are not alone, we spread words of hope and kindness from those who have gone through traumatic experiences to those who are currently going through them.
Our Compassionate Solution:
To solve this injustice of Violence
we will address the feeling of solidarity after gun violence trajedies
by sending letters to those who have recently been in a gun violence tragedy from people in Sandy Hook, a community that has been affected by gun violence in the past.
Our Project Plan:
- To be able to send letters to all victims of gun violence
We will increase my / our compassion by...
Talking to my peers and getting feedback from those who are getting my letters. By hearing from those on the other end, I will be able to see what further needs I can meet.
How will you show courage?
I will need to communicate with teachers and principals in order to expand my project, this will require courage because it is not always easy to talk to those who are superior to you.
How will you collaborate with others?
I already have a team of selected people who have been to my events in the past to help plan future events and expand my project into something that can reach more than just Newtown High School.
How will you know you are moving in the right direction? (What are specific ways you can measure your impact?)
I will know if I am moving in the right directions because I will have an increasing number of people at my letter writing events and my team will be coming up with innovative ideas for expansion.
- Talk to teachers in my school
- Begin fundraising
- Get the word out via facebook and announcements at school
