Holiday reading for a kinder, braver world

Yes we need gun control and better mental health and all that. But won't we also benefit from a kinder, braver world?

Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation has teamed up with Harvard University and the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation on a series of research papers to help ordinary people in America grab hold of the future, defeat meanness and bullying, and make kindness stick. There are papers about the role of youth organizations like 4H Clubs and Girl Scouts, and what young people can do to create emotionally healthy schools.

Follow the link. Read the research. Your book report is due when school starts up in January,

The Kinder & Braver World Project: Research Series – Eight Papers on The Role of Youth Organizations and Youth Movements for Social Change
