Three Dot Dash = Peace
Peggy Who Am I?
Don’t you love this video? My new friend Kyle Tibbs Jones (another amazing woman in Atlanta) told me about the work of Three Dot Dash today. This organization, headed up by former Chic band member Nile Rodgers and Nancy Hunt (The We Are Family Foundation) and inspired by Mattie Stepanek (the late poet and peacemaker who was one of Oprah’s favorites) works to connect teens globally around the mission of peace. From their website:
The We Are Family Foundation (WAFF), a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was formed in 2002 with the mission to celebrate the vision of a global family by creating and supporting programs that inspire and educate the next generation about respect, understanding and cultural diversity – while striving to solve some of our biggest global problems at the same time.
I had previously heard of The We Are Family Foundation from Brenda Isaac, founder of the One Love Learning Foundation. [Brenda is in Africa now setting up the next school for OLLF, but you will be hearing more about her soon as I am interviewing her for WSWNow upon her return.
I also hope to meet Nile and Nancy to talk to them about the work of their Foundation and the Three Dot Dash Just Peace Summit. According to Kyle, it is taking place right now.
I look forward to interviewing all of these folks for WSWNow.com very soon.
