"Rebuilding Truth", Beauty's got no Race!..
A Peacemaking Project by Jaxii R.
What is the injustice we are solving?
Women of color face many insecurities because of their race. They get their insecurities by how society elevates white women. This project will highlight how all Cultures are beautiful regardless of their race.

Thanks for posting this project! Addressing racist beauty standards is such an important issue, and I'm glad you want to work on it. Do you have ideas about how you want to make a positive change around this injustice, or do you want to spend more time exploring the root causes of it? Check out https://www.peacefirst.org/projects/test-project-3/dashboard/understand-injustice if you'd like some tools for talking with people directly affected, people perpetuating this problem, and people who are already working to make a change.
I'm wondering how we can best support you. Let me know if there's any way we can help! You can also check out peacefirst.org/resources to gain more tools. Looking forward to seeing your next steps!

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!

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!
