Atlanta: City of Peace, Inc. (ACP) is a grassroots organization aspiring to partner with local, national and international peace-builders. In the coming years, our goal is to help Dr. King's birthplace fulfill its true destiny and become formalized as a global capital of peace.

We are confident that Atlanta can inspire our global family and be seen as the cornerstone of the Peace Millennium (2000 – 3000). We invite help in "branding" Dr. King's birthplace as a global city of peace.   

John R. Naugle has a history of community leadership. From managing largest branch library, Information Center for the Centers for Disease Control to serving on the Board of Directors for the Gandhi Foundation USA to volunteering for other non-profits in the Atlanta area, his perspective about our collective challenges and possibilities is wide.

For many years, John has looked for ways to celebrate his global family, an early influence by his mother, and this led to him being a Gandhi-King Proponent. In support of the birth of 2018, he submitted this Guest Column to the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) for publication on Global Family Day 1/1/18. In 2017, he was a special guest speaker at the Gandhi Foundation USA's event for Gandhi's "Jayanti", plus this 2013 Memorial Service for Nelson Mandela. He also served as Master of Ceremonies for an annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebration.

John has a BS Psychology from the University of Houston. A former resident of Marietta GA, he campaigned for mayor in 1993 & 1997.

Atlanta: City of Peace collaborates with individuals, institutions, and organizations to help us accomplish our global peace mission.
