Diversity is a challenge in our small, rural town.

A Peacemaking Project by Addy B.

What is the injustice we are solving?

We know people who stereotype and people who are affected by stereotyping. We feel it is our moral responsibility to understand people of different cultures. We believe understanding leads us to realizing we are not so different after all.

Hi Addy - completely agree that it's extremely important to promote cross-cultural understanding and collaboration, and not all students have access to these cultural exchange opportunities. This is why I've started a nonprofit called Project Exchange (https://www.myprojectexchange.com/) which addresses this problem through a Digital Exchange Program. Please check it out, and I hope it's helpful!
