We need Peace and Love!
The Peace and Love is an anti-violence movement whose mission is to promote and encourage individuals to see peace and love to replace the violence that has seized our cities, our country and our world. This group understands that those individuals that choose violence to resolve their problems need to be encouraged, inspired, educated and implored to seek peaceful resolution to the conflict that they are faced with today, tomorrow. They sponsor a traveling poetry production that bring other youths into the schools to promote anti-violence to other young people.
