St Lucian Activist & CMI President elected as Ambassador for Peace
The Universal Peace Federation of North America and Caribbean Nations held a conference in Miami over the 1st and 2nd of November. The theme? “The USA and the Caribbean at a Turning Point: Building a Nation and a World of Peace” with speakers attending from both USA & Caribbean.
Eight Caribbean representatives from various institutions, including Ms. Browne was elected as Ambassadors of Peace by Universal Peace Federation.
Browne notes; “We must continue to advocate for alternative solutions for peace-building and development in our small nations. Caribbean nations are beginning to experience the effects of economic and social violence. We must engage our youths to think positively of themselves and their communities. Our youths need to experience peace within their homes, their schools, their communities and most importantly their within the countries. I strongly believe that peace is not the absence of war, but the avoidance of conflict. We are one human family- we may have differences in cultures, history, tradition, race and economics – but we must find our commonalities through Peace, Justice and Equality.”
