Frightened children … helpless parents … neighborhood “beefs” that end in death … families with no homes, around the world … and a looming threat of nuclear Armageddon.
Now more than ever, we need
peace. We need hope
. And nothing under heaven gives us more hope for peace than LFFP, the life work of MJ and Jerry Park. For 36 years, in the DC area and increasingly around the world, they have been reaching across barriers, expanding their expertise and growing their influence.
This year, thanks to your
generosity and your
passion for peace, we welcomed two full-time staff members: Program Director Shoa Phillpotts and Development Director Caity Dee. Since January, with the help of our interns and volunteers, we have shared peacebuilding skills with 6,785 children and adults in 3 new states (NY, MI, and IL) as well as our DC, Maryland, and Virginia hub. In 2017, 630 children and adults took part in Peace Camp alone. Additionally, we have shared our peacebuilding skills with individuals in 7 countries, including Rwanda and Italy.
With your continuing help, we aim to double many of those numbers in 2018, offering:
• Prison Ministry in 2 sites instead of 1,
• Peace Circles in 6 shelters instead of 3,
• Peace Classes in 12 schools instead of 6, and
• Afterschool & Parent programs in 20 community sites instead of 10.
We thank you for everything you have already done to support LFFP and its spaces of love. You’ve helped us grow.
Please donate today, for the love of peace, so the Parks can keep saying YES to the many, many requests they receive.
With gratitude, hope, and warmest wishes for a joyful, peaceful holiday season,
Candace, Mary, and Tommy
