Landa Teen Library Leadership Council’s Statements for Peace
“Education is, quite simply, peace-building by another name.”
As educators, we believe in the importance of peace and history. By looking at the past, we can promote peace by teaching our students to widen their perspectives and learn about not only their history, but a global history. Through respecting others’ cultures, religions, and traditions, we can help them understand the power they have to be leaders in living in a peaceful world.

The Landa Library Teen Leadership Council strongly supports all anti-discrimination efforts in the spirit of Black History Month, particularly in light of the events surrounding Charlie Hebdo in Paris. We strive to support peaceful resolution to conflict, both locally and internationally, knowing that, as Martin Luther King, Jr. once said “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”Wilson 18, Madison 16
