In 2016, Lynne Golodner created One Earth Writing, a nonprofit devoted to building peace and harmony through writing workshops for teens. At One Earth Writing, we believe in the power of story to heal the world.
One Earth Writing programs bring together teens from different races, religions, and socioeconomic communities. Our participants write about love and disappointment, sports and food, the details of their lives, and in doing so, realize how similar they are. When we sit down together, human to human, and share stories, we begin to build bridges of understanding. That's the first step to eliminating hate around the world.
