Social Change MattersAs urban and rural communities become increasingly diverse and home to people representing a wealth of cultural differences, there is increased social pressure, which affects how we live, respond to, and interact with each other. This impacts our interactions and ability to communicate, whether with children and youth, adults or the elderly. Nowhere is this point more recognizable than within our public schools where young people struggle each day to recognize, appreciate, learn from, and respect their peers who now reflect a diversity of races, languages, religions, family experiences, and values. Our work is therefore rooted in a need to develop professional and academic programs that challenge perceptions about "others," which promote awareness and understanding of ethnic and cultural differences, and WAF, Inc. accomplishes this through linkages of schools and their communities in innovative activities. World Arts Foundation, Inc. has rooted the annual "Keep Alive The Dream” tribute to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a vital and practical tool, which meshes the rich arts, culture, and history of our community.
