Alliance for the New Humanity
Founded by Deepak Chopra and two Nobel Peace Prize winners, Oscar Arias and
Betty Williams, the Alliance for a New Humanity connects a global compassionate citizenry that
influences policies closer to the true principles of life. The Alliance works to create a critical mass of peace
consciousness, and project a new narrative that fully recognizes the oneness of humanity. Their
catalyst is the enhancement of connectivity amongst the diverse groups and individuals working to
bring about change in their communities and particular fields of interest. ANH is an international,
non-denominational, non-partisan effort, focusing on the basic unitary principles of the human spirit
as reflected in the noblest religious and secular traditions. Its work will not be measured by sheer
volume or numbers, but rather by the reverberation of a new narrative of human oneness leading
to compassionate, understanding and peaceful actions. They invite leaders in government, business,
arts, religion and other sectors of society to participate in this dialogue, on the sole basis of their
concern for humanity, their respect for life, and their longing for a better, more conciliatory and
equitable world for a new definition of Peace.

Comedy for Peace ™ is a very serious effort to promote peace in a very funny way.
Using comedy and film to show Palestinians and Israelis a way to co-exist, Comedy for Peace

— Comedy for Peace ™ demonstrates: "If we can laugh together, we can live together."
Comics supporting this project include Whoopi Goldberg, David Brenner, and Harold Ramis.

discovering who we are through our dreams, journaling, meditations, active imagination and
creativity; understanding our differences in perception and behavior and valuing these different
gifts; living out our lives and relationships consciously so as not to project our darkness onto
others; participating in God's ever continuing creation.

Mosaic Multicultural Foundation
Mosaic seeks to create cross-cultural alliances, mentoring relationships
and social connections built upon personal trust and commitment to bridge unhealthy
divisions in contemporary communitites. The process of finding, fitting and weaving
together divergent yet necessary pieces involves making new social fabrics from existing
ethnic, spiritual, psychological and political threads. Mosaic means putting essential pieces
together; forming a whole from separate, divided, even estranged parts. Each project begins
with the idea that the necessary pieces can be found, even if it means looking in troublesome
or unexpected palces. Current projects focus on youth at risk, 'genius based' mentoring and
developing the 'arts of community' in diverse organizations and groups.

work with purpose, passion and profit.
