Peace Plan Support

Metropolitan Atlanta Violence Prevention Partnership (MAVPP)

21st Century Nonviolence Movement

Attention Violence Prevention Pioneers

Many of us were not involved in the 1960s when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led the groundbreaking nonviolence movement, but scores of us have benefited from his work. Now is your chance to be involved in preventing violence in the 21st Century.  A new opportunity is now before us to create a legacy and turn the tide of violence for our children and our children’s children.

·  What is the Peace Plan?  It is a three-part approach that uses science and innovation to promote peace.        

                  · Youth-led activities

                  ·  Age-based strategies

                  ·  People pulling together

· What area does the Peace Plan target? Six core Atlanta counties and then all of Georgia.

· Why does the Peace Plan exist?  To prevent harm and save lives by creating a long-term, credible road map for peace.

· Who does the Peace Plan seek to serve? Youth are the core and everyone else benefits—rich, poor, black, white, yellow, brown, and others?

· How does the Peace Plan prevent violence? It encourages people to use tactics that we already know stop violence.

· How will Peace Plan organizers link the Peace Plan with the King Memorial unveiling:   The MAVPP Peace Plan will be dedicated to Dr. King’s memory as THE 21st Century violence prevention initiative.

· What do we need from you?  Your support. Check the box below:  “I support the Peace Plan.”
