Interrupting and redirecting young people who are on a reckless course and setting them firmly on a pathway to their dreams.
Hillgrove POPP Squad: Positive Social Media Campaign Champs!
“While the world is talking about walls and tunnels, the Power of Peace Project is presently building bridges of hope and peace between the youth on both sides of the border. The kids in Tijuana now have a voice and they are shouting for PEACE.” – Kit Cummings
POPP in Tijuana, Mexico
In 2016 the Power of Peace Project launched a Peace Initiative in one of the most dangerous areas of Tijuana, Mexico. We have partnered with Letics Sports, Inc. in San Diego, CA to support the work with the beautiful kids in that violent region using sports to help them get off the streets, and stay in school, and away from the Cartels. The Boys of Tijuana inspired our “Protect the Dream” campaign working with stand-out athletes in high schools and on college campuses in the States. We are raising up the most influential students to change “what cool looks like” among their peers and to become much-needed young positive role models– and to use their influence for peace, compassion, and acceptance.
POPP at the Historic King Center
On Sunday Jan 10th, 2016, Kit was invited to take part in the festivities at the King Center for Nonviolence in Atlanta to honor Dr. King’s 87th birthday. Kit’s latest release Peace “Behind the Wire: A Nonviolent Resolution” was featured and the King Center held a book signing for Kit, along with Dr. Bernice King’s latest book release. The Power of Peace Project was discussed on a special panel in Freedom Hall and other King family members also participated. The King Center now carries “Peace Behind the Wire” in their bookstore. The Dream Lives and the March Continues.
