Featured Peacebuilding Group: Myanmar Center for Civic Leadership

Going international this week, my Featured Peacebuilding Group is the Myanmar Center for Civic Leadership. One of its programs is the Myanmar Peace Makers: designed to give young community leaders the opportunity to: 1) study issues of hate speech and misinformation in Myanmar, 2) build a community of young activists from across the country, and 3) design their own project to reduce hate speech and increase tolerance in their community.

I am a career coach, consultant, and head of a not for profit - the Forage Center - that offers humanitarian education training. I also teach at George Mason University and Drexel University. A one time lawyer, I spent many years teaching in a community college where I was a Fulbright U.S. Scholar teaching in Estonia. I'm the author of Peace Jobs: A Student's Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace (IAP 2016). I've been married to my best friend for over 31 years and we have two well adjusted adult children who teach me something new everyday. I live in Rockville, Maryland.
