More About Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leaders Program
The We Are Family Foundation is a nonprofit organisation in the United States founded in 2001 by musician Nile Rodgers in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Its mission is to create and support programmes that inspire and educate people about mutual respect, understanding, and appreciation for cultural diversity, all while working to solve global problems.
On September 22, 2001, Rodgers and Tommy Boy Music president Tom Silverman brought together 200 musicians, celebrities, and personalities in New York City and Los Angeles to re-record Rodgers’ song “We Are Family” (best known in its 1979 hit version performed by Sister Sledge) to begin the healing process following the September 11 attacks. Spike Lee directed the “We Are Family” music video, and Danny Schechter directed the documentary The Making and Meaning of We Are Family, which depicted the recording session. In 2002, the documentary was chosen as a Sundance Film Festival Special Selection.
There is also an equivalent music video intended for elementary school children, which features well-known, popular children’s characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants from the show of the same name, Barney from the show of the same name, Arthur from the show of the same name, Disney characters, and Sesame Street characters, among many, many others.
Three Dot Dash is a yearlong leadership and mentoring programme inspired by the late 13-year-old poet Mattie Stepanek that teaches teen leaders how to effectively “tell their stories” during the Just Peace Summit using various forms of media, current technology, and distribution methods to gain media attention and public support for their causes.
Three Dot Dash establishes a global network of individuals, corporations, and nonprofit organisations to support GTLs and encourage public participation around the world. GTLs from 30 countries on six continents have attended the Three Dot Dash Just Peace Summits. The 2013 Just Peace Summit was held in New York City in March 2013.
