About Men As Peacemakers
To foster and develop peacemakers through modeling, mentoring, storytelling and dialogue.
Peacemakers stand up and say there is an alternative to violence, and that violence is not acceptable.
They help children develop the assets they need - positive values, family structure, and role models - to grow up healthy. They teach, men and boys, women and girls, new ways of being and of doing. Peacemakers resist the sense of powerlessness which violence bring to our community.
