With hauntingly beautiful harmonies and powerful acoustic instrumentals that deliver the energy and strength of their convictions, emma's revolution creates new standards in the art of social justice. Their songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger and recorded by Holly Near.
On Saturday December 4, 2010 at Coppin State University, youth advocates, social workers, writers, lawyers, entertainers, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers came together to discuss how to make all youth feel safe and valued in our society.

Annie Frundle is an intern with AFSC in Kansas City.
Annie Frundle, an Avila University social work student, began working half-time with ASFC Kansas City as a social work intern in August. Annie has been learning about AFSC's work and assisted with preparations for the Crossroads peace festival on October 1.
