The Opposite of Violence

No matter where you live in the world, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by headlines in the news today. From bombings in Baghdad to violence between police and civilians in the US, there is so much conflict tearing our communities apart.

But there are also people coming together and making our communities stronger. What signs of love and resilience do you see around you? Are you part of a project or movement that is bringing people together? We invite you to share your story. Open until 28 July.
