A Peacemaking Project by Heather F.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Through Harmony, we will develop music locally and internationally, and work with global connections to spread Harmony worldwide. Songs developed will address the global issues on racism and violence. With the money raised from concerts/events and the positive messages from the songs we will reach our end goal of affecting the environment with donations from profits.

Hi Heather,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Hi Heather,

Just checking in about your project and the next steps. I wanted to make sure you are aware of the upcoming Mini-Grant Deadline - there is still time to remain eligible to attend a Peace First Challenge Accelerator if you complete your Compassionate Insight, Project Plan, and Mini-Grant application by March 31st.

We're excited about your work, and would love to be able to support it with a mini-grant of up to $250.

These tools can help you craft your insight, plan, and budget for your mini-grant:

Through your dashboard you can submit your "compassionate insight," record your plan in "Make a plan" and then "Apply for a mini-grant" for the materials you need.

Let me know how I can help!

Hi Heather,
To join the challenge you can click on "Join Challenge" at: https://www.peacefirst.org/challenge/peace-first-challenge
The main thing to move through the different steps will be to follow the steps in your Dashboard. You can find that here: https://www.peacefirst.org/projects/harmony/dashboard each of the steps will recommend a tool to use. You will also find a link to request a mentor if you haven't requested one already. We can also schedule a call to give you more details if you would like to have additional support. Just let us know!

Hi! Thank you very much, Fish. We are a team of 6 members who are all passionate for our cause. As a brand new SAGE business we are very eager to get started, but we need some help to get into it full-swing. How do we get involved in the challenge? What do we have to do?

Hi Heather! Thanks for sharing this project. I love the idea of working to address racism and violence through art, in this case music -- which can be a powerful way to speak out and share stories about these issues!

Do you have a team together? How many other young people are involved? :)

And one more question -- how can we help?
