Developing Leadership for Justice & Peace in Each Generation
What Leaders Do
Anna Rodriguez, May's highlighted Just Peace Leader, demonstrates how working with On Earth Peace has changed her understanding of peace and justice. She says:
“Before I joined OEP I believed that there were only two ways to approach injustice (peacefully and through violence). OEP and my environmental justice work has taught me to see the roots of injustice and seek for solutions through nonviolent actions. I have had the opportunity to learn from different communities and share with them Martin Luther King’s methods of nonviolent action to combat current environmental injustices, such as a community in Uganda that had to find a way to stop the creation of a landfill in their community. I am a better person today, with better understanding and better tools to approach and combat community injustices. "
