    Quest For Democracy 2024

    Embarking on a Quest For Democracy 2024, in the heart of Sacramento, CA, was nothing short of an electrifying journey. On that monumental Monday, April 29, 2024, East Point Point Academy stood shoulder to shoulder with an array of esteemed partner organizations at the majestic State Capital. Together, we ignited a fervent rally and embarked on a stirring march, unified in our unwavering resolve to eradicate the shackles of slavery.

    The atmosphere pulsated with an indomitable passion, reminiscent of the very essence that fueled Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s transformative vision. With each step forward, each impassioned chant, we echoed the spirit of resilience and justice that defines our collective quest.

    Reflecting on our progress, we recognize the distance we've traversed and the battles we've won. Yet, in the grand tapestry of democracy, there remains an uncharted path ahead, beckoning us with its promise of a more equitable tomorrow. Our journey is far from over; it is a perpetual odyssey, one fueled by the relentless pursuit of an ideal world.

    As we stand on the cusp of possibility, let us reaffirm our commitment to the cause. Let us press forward with unwavering determination, for it is only through our collective effort and unwavering dedication that the dream of true democracy shall be fully realized. Together, let us march onward, undeterred by the challenges that lie ahead, until every soul basks in the radiant glow of freedom and equality."

    To Our Supporters

    Dear Supporters,

    In the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s timeless wisdom, we at East Point Peace Academy are driven by the belief that nonviolence holds the key to breaking the cycle of revenge and fostering lasting peace through reconciliation. Since our inception in 2013, we have been dedicated to spreading the transformative teachings of Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation.

    Our commitment to change knows no bounds, and we are proud to introduce our latest workshop series, "Trans-Communality: Selling Social Change Without Sell Out." Through workshops both within correctional facilities and in our communities, we have been actively diverting adults from re-entering the criminal justice system, forging a path toward brighter futures for individuals, families, and neighborhoods impacted by mass incarceration.

    Now, as we embark on an ambitious five-year plan, we need your support more than ever. With your generous donations and grants, we aim to expand our reach and deepen our impact. Together, we can turn the tide against poverty, violence, and incarceration in under-resourced communities, bringing about tangible and lasting change.

    Join us in our mission to create a world where compassion triumphs over conflict, and every individual has the opportunity to thrive. Your support today will help shape a brighter tomorrow for generations to come.

    With heartfelt gratitude,

    East Point Peace Academy
