One Earth Writing seeks to build harmony in the world through writing workshops that connect tweens and teens from different communities. Through storytelling, writing and sharing, we aim to build bridges of understanding, so that we realize how similar all people truly are. We may come from different races, religions, ethnicities, national origins, sexual orientations or socioeconomic backgrounds, but at the core, we are more similar than we are different.
It is our goal at One Earth Writing to use story as a way of expanding world views, working with open-minded adolescents to change a generation’s perspective on community, interpersonal relationship, and difference so that one day, we live in a world where we see possibility rather than barrier. Connecting one-on-one through word and story is the first step on that journey toward peace.
