Citizens for Peace Ring in the New Year!

“Ring the Bell”, a program focused on putting a stop to domestic violence, will be highlighted at the first Citizens for Peace meeting of 2011, Tuesday, January 11th.

The work of Mallika Dutt, the founder of Breakthrough, an international human rights organization, will be shown in a video presentation. Mallika has been using media and education for 30 years to change the culture of violence. Her innovative program involves encouraging the partnership of men and boys to stop the cycle of domestic violence.

“Ring the Bell, or, “Bell Bajao”, began in India, and with the help of the Clinton Global Initiative and the support of the U.N. Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, is going global.
