In October, JPB EXCEL Educator, Dr. Paula Green, was awarded the Alliance for Peacebuilding Melanie Greenberg United States Peacebuilder Award for her work with Hands Across the Hills - a grassroots project that aims to build bridges across the widening political and cultural divide in America.
The Washington-based Alliance for Peacebuilding, a 15-year-old international organization that has been focused largely on global peace work, decided that Dr. Green's impressive career and recent work with Hands Across the Hills merited the first-ever award.
