"Gifting a Global Capital of Peace to our Global Family!"
 



We have a dream that Atlanta will be transformed into a global capital of peace. INVITATION: Will you Dream with us/JOIN US?

WELCOME TO ATLANTA: CITY OF PEACE



MISSION: Atlanta: City of Peace, Inc. (ACP) is 'gifting' a global capital of peace to our global family.

VISION: We have a DREAM and *PLAN. We feel that the true destiny of Atlanta, Dr. King's birthplace, is in being formalized into a global capital of peace.

INVITATION: Welcoming all participants: YOU & everyone, young & old - from anywhere & everywhere - worldwide, to assist us in Atlanta's transformation. We are confident that Atlanta has the capability of growing into this global position of inspiration and we uniting volunteers from around the world who believe Atlanta can SERVE in this capacity.

SUCCESS: At some special time in the future, when "Atlanta: City of Peace" becomes formalized into a global capital of peace, these particular benefits will flow into our global family:
  • Our city will inspire other cities worldwide to propel the ideals of 'Peace On Earth'
  • Our city will inspire cities worldwide to promote "Tourism: World's Biggest Peace Industry"
  • Our city will inspire other cities worldwide to educate about peace & nonviolence which will MITIGATE & HALT much future VIOLENCE
  • Our city will inspire other cities worldwide to become beacons of HOPE, HEALING and HARMONY for ALL, and for many generations into the future - even as Humanity adventures further out into Space: The Final Frontier.
CONNECT:  On Facebook or by emailing us: info [at] ATLANTAcityofpeace.org

FACT: We have had difficulties scaling up our audacious service dream (creating a global capital of peace) because we are still unfunded and without the help of professionals who know about fundraising. Can you refer a pro-fundraiser and/or dynamic philanthropist? The speed at which we succeed is directly related to when we locate visionary donors.

- - - Our DREAM is to scale-up our mission - - -
In the words of Sam Walton, founder of Walmart,
with 2016 revenues of $482+ Billion,
"Capital is not scarce. Vision is!"


WANTED: We welcome YOU and courageous leaders (young & old, local-global) to become official co-founders with us. "Atlanta: City of Peace" is a huge DREAM and a great way to honor the widely-respected peace legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who is considered the most globally-productive peace movement protégé of Gandhi: Man of the Millennium (Years 1000-2000). We are'MINING' one of Humanity's greatest assets, and we have termed this asset:

"The Gandhi-King Global Peace Connection"

JACKPOT: Our Global Family has a figurative 'GOLDMINE' of a resource, but it is relatively unknown still. Atlanta: City of Peace has committed to locating dynamic leaders (from everywhere and anywhere) who will enjoy creating the process of 'mining' this huge asset with us... and for the well-being of ALL. Since late 2006, at our launch-party in the Sundial Restaurant (on top of the Westin Peachtree Plaza- "Tallest Hotel in the Western Hemisphere") we have formally invited numerous civic, government and business leaders (local-global) to become ACP key official co-founders. For example, in early 2007 we hand-delivered two of 8 original ACP Business Plans and invited participation from Mr. Andrew Young, former ATL Mayor & USA-Ambassador, and A.J. Robinson, President of Central Atlanta Progress (CAP). WE HAVE A DREAM and welcome / invite all.

DREAMS TO REALITY:  With courage and action, our DREAM can accelerate and scale-up quickly. The eventual 'Gifting' of a global capital of peace to our global family is a worthy goal that invites your participation and the help of everyone. At present, we are re-vamping our Board and seek a few nationally-ranked leaders in consulting, tech, philanthropy, fundraising, project management and/or capacity building. The ability to envision and emphasize our organization's and our city's historic possibilities (rather than focus on the common developmental circumstances that all organizations experience) is a PLUS!


*SPECIFIC PLAN: Transforming & formalizing Dr. King's birthplace into a global capital of peace is our DREAM that will eventually become REALITY. At some time, in the not too-distant future we will be able to succeed in our mission by connecting with courageous leaders and establishing great collaborations with dynamic consulting groups like Bain, Accenture or Bridgespan. We know they can help to effectively connect with the many Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, the 1000+ peace organizations of the world, plus many civic service organizations and corporations. Great News! Dr. Yunus, the 2006 Nobel Peace Laureate, already promotes Atlanta as a city of peace (Note: a formal comment by John R. Naugle, ACP's CEO, is found at the end of this 2014 Saporta Report article). Dr. Yunus remains a major inspiration to many millions worldwide, especially ACP. We hand-delivered a formal ACP Invitation to Dr. Yunus when he spoke in Atlanta on Aug 28, 2010 "I HAVE A DREAM" Anniversary (his decision pending). His photo on ACP Facebook.

Future collaborations with many leaders (local to global) will propel development of several major peace projects and many smaller peace projects. Securing great tech & web design, we will be able to network with many individual peace-builders (from everywhere). They will  represent many types of organizations and corporations. Development of our many projects, large & small, will occur and we will also establish many collaborations to produce numerous inspiring events. With the professional oversight of a nationally-ranked major accounting firm and CFO we will be able to provide assurances to dynamic philanthropists who will eventually fill a huge development fund for our Mission and projects. It is appropriate that we dream BIG in the birthplace of Dr. King.
