Join Peacebuilders’ Founder and Director, Eva Marszewski, in welcoming Marlon Merraro as our new Executive Director
Dear Peacebuilders’ friends and supporters,
The beginning of a new year and decade brings unique challenges. Peacebuilders is nevertheless finding ways to continue to serve our most vulnerable young people. In these unprecedented times, your continuing support is more important to Peacebuilders than ever.
You have all been loyal and wonderful friends and supporters from as far back as 2003 when the very idea of using a circle-based restorative justice approach to conflict, and in particular to adolescent conflict, was basically unknown in Toronto’s schools and courts, to the present day when Peacebuilders’ restorative work is broadly recognized and well respected.
As the Founder of Peacebuilders, I am excited to be able to now officially pass the torch to and welcome our new Executive Director, Marlon Merraro. Marlon’s background provides an excellent fit to the organization’s needs. Moreover, Marlon’s personal vision is well aligned with a future that sees restorative initiatives as the primary, go to, conflict management, community and city building tool for a safe, vibrant and thriving future!
I will of course continue to serve Peacebuilders as a member of the Board of Directors and look forward to working with the Board and with Marlon to support Peacebuilders’ work in aid of a better future for our young people.
With great affection.
Eva E. Marszewski, O.Ont., L.S.M.
