"Help us scale up the Global Peace Academy (GPA)"

The Global Peace Academy (GPA) is a major project from Atlanta: City of Peace, Inc. (ACP) which is an early-stage secular & interfaith organization whose mission is to celebrate Atlanta's global peace legacy and to help Dr. King's birthplace experience its true destiny of becoming transformed and formalized into a Global Capital of Peace. FYI: It is essentially Dr. King, CURRENTLY the world's most referenced Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, who encourages all to remember Mahatma Gandhi. Consider Dr. King's CHALLENGING & SOBERING words --- which are also a warning:

"Gandhi was inevitable. If humanity is to progress, Gandhi is inescapable. He lived, thought and acted, inspired by the vision of humanity evolving toward a world of peace and harmony. We may ignore Gandhi at our own risk."​

The Global Peace Academy (GPA) is one of several major projects and many smaller projects now development.  Each will celebrate the Global Peace Legacies of Gandhi & King.  Remember that it is Dr. King who warns us that we cannot forget Gandhi.  And LOOK what Mahatma Gandhi says about education and the youth; our future!  The Mahatma ("Great Soul") stated:


"IF we are to teach real peace in the world... we must begin with the children."
