Since 1985, our founder, Jerry Leggett, has been working with local communities to create peacebuilding events that foster unity and raise resources to do good on the ground.

 

Our Mission

  • We provide tools for community peacebuilding initiatives.
  • Our people-focused strategy develops and delivers people-oriented programs to people with shared values and desired outcomes.
  • Through P.L.A.N. -- the Peace Literacy Action Network, we are growing a grassroots movement of peace literacy advocates who are helping to bring positive, measurable change, one word at a time.
“Peace literacy is a language for the art of living. One letter can change ‘word’ to ‘world.’ One action can change our individual world, rippling into the outer world. What word can change your world today?”
— Jerry Leggett, President/CEO/Founder, 21st Century Peace Literacy Foundation

 

WHAT WE'VE ACHIEVED

  • Six Peacebuilder events in four states, Ohio, California, Arizona and Oregon with $200,000+ raised for peace literacy initiatives since 2015.
  • 2017 Annual Peace Literacy Word Calendar (distributed 5,000 copies).
  • The Hub Peacebuilder Tour, a mobile peace education resource to support Rotary peacebuilding at the community level.  9,200 miles/100 days on the road.
  • More than 100,000 followers on 8 social media sites including 65,000 Peace Hub followers and 39,000 Peace Heroes Walk Around the World followers.
  • Presenter of the annual Miami Valley Peacebuilder Walk & Village -- the largest peacebuilding walk in U.S.A.
  • The Hub Peacebuilder featured at the 2017 Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, GA.
  • Provided speakers and music entertainment for the 2017 Rotary World Peace Conference in Ann Arbor, MI.  The Hub was a big hit!
