“To Solve the Injustice of bullying, gang violence, substance abuse, LGBTQ and depression, we will address pre teens in middle school. We will inform them of methods and resources, by sharing our personal experiences and talking to them.”
Hi. I am a Program Director at Peace First. Thanks for joining the Peace First Challenge and sharing your insight! Your team has identified several important injustices that young people face. It sounds like middle schoolers may not have resources or peers who have had similar experiences to support them. Have you spoken with any middle schoolers to see what resources or forms of support would be most helpful? Are there any organizations in or around your community that you can talk to about local supports for them? These conversations may provide some good insights and helpful local resources!
Also, here are some resources on the topics you mentioned:

Good luck and I am looking forward to seeing your peacemaking work in action!
