©Atlanta: City of Peace™ is a GREAT brand. Seeing a need to give back, we contacted powerful leaders and formed our organization to transform and formalize the birthplace of Dr. King into a Global Capital of Peace. We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the courageous helping hands of amazing volunteers from the Beloved Community (locally-globally).
"ATLANTA: City of Peace is Gifting a Global Capital of Peace to our Global Family." Want to assist? We focus on building what is good & making the maximum positive effort to shape the future. Our courageous leaders & volunteers provide the momentum that helps us affect change. Join us to provide solutions that make a long-lasting difference in Atlanta & around the world.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our noble Mission.
Atlanta: City of Peace, Inc. (ACP) is 'gifting' a Global Capital of Peace to our Global Family.
We have a dream that Atlanta will be transformed into a Global Capital of Peace.
INVITATION: Will you Dream with us/JOIN US? We have a DREAM and *PLAN. We KNOW that the true destiny of Atlanta, Dr. King's birthplace, is in being formalized & TRANSFORMED into a Global Capital of Peace.
SERVANT LEADERSHIP: We, with YOU, can take this beautiful concept to a whole new level. Mohandas K. 'Mahatma' Gandhi, Father of World's Biggest Democracy & GREAT inspiration to many MANY millions worldwide -- especially Dr. King -- tells you, and all, about a way or path to heal and move forward:
“The best way to find yourself
is to lose yourself
in the service of others.”
INVITATION: Welcoming all participants: YOU & everyone, young & old - from anywhere & everywhere - worldwide, to assist us in Atlanta's transformation. We are confident that Atlanta has the capability of growing into this global position of inspiration and we uniting volunteers from around the world who believe Atlanta can SERVE in this capacity.
SUCCESS: At some special time in the future, when our networks & ecosystem of projects are developed and Atlanta: City of Peace* becomes formalized into a Global Capital of Peace, these particular benefits will flow into our Global Family:
A) Our city will inspire other cities worldwide to propel the ideals of 'Peace On Earth'
B) Our city will inspire cities worldwide to promote "Tourism: World's Biggest Peace Industry"
C) Our city will inspire other cities worldwide to educate about peace & nonviolence which will MITIGATE & HALT much future VIOLENCE
D) Our city will inspire other cities worldwide to become beacons of HOPE, HEALING and HARMONY for ALL, and for many generations into the future - even as Humanity adventures further out into Space: The Final Frontier.

FACT: We have had difficulties scaling up our audacious service dream (creating a Global Capital of Peace) because we are still unfunded and without the help of professionals who know about fundraising. Can you refer a pro-fundraiser and/or a dynamic philanthropist, or courageous civic leader or business leader? The speed at which we succeed is directly related to when we locate visionary donors.

Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart (with 2020 revenues of $524 + Billion), says it best:
"Capital is not scarce. Vision is!"
WANTED: We welcome YOU and courageous leaders (young & old, local-global) to become official co-founders with us. "Atlanta: City of Peace" is a huge DREAM and a great way to honor the widely-respected peace legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who is considered the most globally-productive peace movement protégé of Gandhi: Man of the Millennium (Years 1000-2000). We are 'MINING' one of Humanity's greatest assets, and we have termed this asset:
"The Gandhi-King Global Peace Connection"
JACKPOT: Our Global Family has a figurative 'GOLDMINE' of a resource, but it is relatively unknown still. Atlanta: City of Peace has committed to locating dynamic leaders (from everywhere and anywhere) who will enjoy creating the process of 'mining' this huge asset with us... and for the well-being of ALL. Since late 2006, at our launch-party in the Sundial Restaurant (on top of the Westin Peachtree Plaza- "Tallest Hotel in the Western Hemisphere") we have formally invited numerous civic, government and business leaders (local-global) to become ACP key official co-founders. For example, in early 2007 we hand-delivered two of 8 original ACP Business Plans and invited participation from Mr. Andrew Young, former ATL Mayor & USA-Ambassador, and A.J. Robinson, President of Central Atlanta Progress (CAP). WE HAVE A DREAM and welcome / invite all.
DREAMS TO REALITY: With courage & action, our DREAM can accelerate to scale-up quickly. The eventual 'Gifting' of a Global Capital of Peace to our Global Family is a worthy goal that invites your participation and the help of everyone. At present, we are re-vamping our Board and seek a few nationally-ranked leaders in consulting, tech, philanthropy, fundraising, project management and/or capacity building. The ability to envision & emphasize our organization's + our city's historic possibilities (rather than focus on the common developmental circumstances that all organizations face) is a PLUS!
*SPECIFIC PLAN: Our organization has been offered the gift of developing a GREAT brand-name, ©Atlanta: City of Peace™, which was created by John R. Naugle in 2003. Transforming & formalizing Dr. King's birthplace into a Global Capital of Peace is our DREAM that will eventually become REALITY. At some time in the not too-distant future we will be able to succeed in our mission by connecting with courageous leaders and establishing great collaborations with dynamic consulting groups like Bain, Accenture or Bridgespan. We know they can help to effectively connect with the many Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, the 1000+ peace organizations of the world, plus many civic service organizations and corporations. Great News! Dr. Yunus, the 2006 Nobel Peace Laureate, already promotes Atlanta as a city of peace (Note: a formal comment by John R. Naugle, ACP's CEO, is found at the end of this 2014 Saporta Report article).
Dr. Yunus remains a major inspiration to many millions worldwide, especially ACP. In 2010, we hand-delivered a formal ACP Invitation to Dr. Yunus when he spoke in Atlanta on Aug 28, 2010 -- which was "I HAVE A DREAM" Anniversary (his decision pending). His photo, with ACP's CEO, is on ACP's Facebook page.
Future collaborations with many leaders (local to global) will propel development of several major peace projects and many smaller peace projects. Securing great tech & web design, we will be able to network with many individual peace-builders (from everywhere). They will represent many types of organizations and corporations. Development of our many projects, large & small, will occur and we will also establish many collaborations to produce numerous inspiring events. With the engagement of, and the professional oversight of, a nationally-ranked major accounting firm and CFO we will be able to file the papers for establishing and forming a legal, official and robust 501c3 with the US-IRS so our peace ecosystem will provide needed tax benefits for major donors. Do you have referrals, connections and ideas for providing assurances to dynamic philanthropists who will eventually fill a huge development fund for our Mission and projects. It is appropriate that we dream BIG in the birthplace of Dr. King? Please send them to us. Thank you.
SHAPE HUMAN HISTORY: Will you be a key official co-founder and co-creator for Atlanta: City of Peace... a future Global Capital of Peace? Are you saddened with all the violence in the world? Do you want to propel the Hope and the Dream of Peace on Earth? Then develop our legacy project with us. We are an early-stage secular and interfaith organization that is a new Think Tank. Our "Think Tank" welcomes all; young & old, local or international. Through all our projects, large or small, we help everyone to celebrate the life they've been given and to excel in their responsibilities by promoting important virtues like courage, peace, love, justice, health, hope and happiness. Each of our many peace initiatives are evaluated for organic fit among our three brand pillars:
LEARNING about best practices, innovations and expressions of peace
HEALING heart, mind and body to become a stronger vessel for peace
CELEBRATING peace & life with gratitude and help from our local and global family
