Sweet Songs Collection No. 14 : Peace First

PeaceFirstLogoPeace First (formerly Peace Games) began as an annual festival organized by Dr. Francelia Butler, a professor of children’s literature. The event brought children together to play cooperative games and share their visions for peace. Eventually, it grew from an annual event into an independent non-profit organisation that now operates in Boston, Los Angeles, and New York.

Peace First currently leads a national movement celebrating young people and their potential to create positive change. The organisation teaches peacemaking skills, empowers educators and parents to teach and model these skills and values, and creates social messages that raise expectations for young people to demonstrate compassion and empathy.
