The Humanity Project is seven years old … and counting. On November 3, 2005, we were incorporated as a nonprofit group with the state of Florida. Less than a year later, on September 26, 2006, we received our all-important IRS certification as a tax-exempt 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to literary and educational purposes. Since then, we’ve gone through a lot of key changes.

Due to the tireless work of numerous activists, organizations, parents and politicians, Florida is now-considered to have a model anti-bullying law. Florida state law requires schools to integrate anti-bullying efforts into their policies, procedures and curricula. Many amazing organizations like the Humanity Project help to provide special programs that utilize the arts, music, role plays, dialogue and more to help young people see that bullying hurts everyone and that it takes everyone to stop it. Such programs are an important step in reducing school-based bullying. It is essential, however, that we move beyond an “anti” model. It can be tiring and depressing always working against something. Young people need to be presented with an alternate model, something to aspire to.

Have you visited our PeacePage yet? Just look up at the menu listing above this blog and you’ll see the link for this very cool web page here on thehumanityproject.com We’ve had enough success in less than one year as host of the PeacePage that we had to add a second page to it, now called PeacePage2. I’m telling you all this today because we’ve added a few new photos this week. Here’s a direct link to check them out: http://thehumanityproject.com/peacepage/peacepage2/

At the Humanity Project, we have much to be grateful for. We appreciate our members and supporters and friends, the folks who believe in our work. Each of our sponsors and community partners is in our thoughts too, those organizations and companies that make it possible for us to help others. They include Broward Sheriff’s Office, State Farm, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and the whole list of backers you’ll find on our “Sponsors/Community Partners” page on this website. Beyond all of that, we are deeply grateful for the chance to develop our ideas into practical programs that make a difference in the community — programs such as our Anti-bullying Through The Arts and Shared Value For Adults. We also connect with the public through our new PeacePage as well as through our podcasts, blogs, newsletters and more. Much more.

Notice anything new? Just look at the top of this website, at the menu listings. You’ll find one has been added, something called “PeacePage.” Here’s the direct link to make it easy for you to see what we’re talking about: www.thehumanityproject.com/peacepage. We are very, very proud to host it on the Humanity Project site. Created by the Humanity Project in close partnership with our friend and member, Haikaa Yamamoto, PeacePage is a collaboration among nonprofit groups from all seven continents, as well as individuals from around the world. Yep, we even have Antarctica represented — twice.
