Promote the Peace is the alternative that will allow kids to share their thoughts, ideas, and talents on a positive platform. Please help us by contributing to this effort. The production of the CD/DVD is expensive and your support will help make this happen.
Message from our founder Mr. James Akil Jennings….
It’s no secret that media has had an increasingly negative impact on the way our children measure their personal image and beauty standards. Music, movies, and television programs often depict characters using drugs and alcohol and engaging in violent behaviors. At a developmental stage when teens seek greater freedom and independence, the glorification of drugs, alcohol, risky sexual and violent behaviors in the media make it challenging for teens to make responsible behavioral choices.
The Promote the Peace program offers a youth focused program that will offer young people an outlet to Promote and Discover positive Music, Poetry, Essays, Dance Videos, and Short Films. Since 2008, Promote the Peace Program has received community support from Council Member Bonnie Panell, Senator Darryll Steinberg, Council-member Roger Dickinson, The Sacramento Boys & Girls Club, The Sacramento Job Corps, Sacramento Juneteenth, MLK365, and many other great business and community organizations.
Promote the Peace will reward positive contributions with online, on air, and on stage features, competitions, scholarships, and cash prizes. Promote the Peace will use Radio, TV, Promote the Peace Stages, Teen Summits, Our Online Community, Talent Competitions, Music CD/DVD’s, High School Tours, and Merchandising to feature our participants. Participants can also take advantage of hands on experience in the multitude of skillsets that are related to the world of multimedia broadcasting, production, and promotion. Through our partners and sponsors, Promote the Peace will also introduce Sacramento youth to a variety of career development, mentoring and internship opportunities.
Promote the Peace has partnered with The Sacramento Boys and Girls Club and produced an annual Teen Summit at their downtown teen center. In 2008, we launched Promote the Peace Radio Online featuring popular local and national artist with an emphasis on moral content. Since 2013, Promote the Peace has been given a day long stage at the annual Juneteenth Festival where we featured only positive performers.
Promote the Peace now has our own online community where young people can communicate without being exposed by the inappropriate content we see on other social media platforms. In 2014, Promote the Peace received a tentative agreement with a local television station to air our teen talk, news, and entertainment Teens program, called “Our World 247”.
Our long term goal is to expand Promote the Peace in several markets nationally and produce National Competitions, Events, and Music CD Compilations. We hope to show our nation’s young people that you can get recognition and reward for creating audio and visual art that is positive and inspiring.
Please contribute what you can to support our kids…
