Give Peace a Chance – Support Genesis at the Crossroads

Imagine a world filled with cross-cultural collaboration… 

Where people of all ages can readily share their personal and cultural identity

Where understanding breaks down barriers between people 

Where sustainable bridges can be built between people…

Genesis at the Crossroads, our 24-year-old non-profit organization builds peaceful communities which foster healing.  We use the neutral and creative vehicle of the arts to engage people, deepen that creative work through experiential peacebuilding education and leadership development, and put our programs into communities through a social justice framework both locally and globally.  

Cross-cultural collaboration forms the foundation of our organizational model to share personal and cultural identity, mindfully break down barriers through understanding, and allow for bridges to be built between people. Through our programs, individuals and teams profoundly learn from one another as they creatively ideate, innovate, and implement sustainable solutions for intractable issues for the benefit of all of humanity.  

With the physical place-making of Genesis Peace Hubs in six locations around the world, we are institutionalizing our collaborative model and building the legacy piece of our organization. Already functioning virtually, our new Genesis Peace Hubs’ physical spaces will convene, incubate, catalyze, and accelerate our peacebuilding activities. The Genesis Peace Hub’s Social Entrepreneurship Center will continue to incubate and scale our social impact business development.

With your generous support, we can scale these critically needed initiatives.
