increaethepeaceIncrease The Peace - Spoken Word, Rap And Poetry Contest

Increase the Peace, an educational campaign and competition to interrupt and challenge the norms of violence. This is a violence intervention program that brings students into the spotlight through their use of positive, creative language.

Expressed through rap and poetry/spoken word, students will become advocates of non-violence, role models, and positive influencers for their schools and neighborhoods. As social psychologist Robert Cialdini reminds us, “The mere perception of the normal behavior of those around us is very powerful.”
