-Man Hee Lee biography (South America Part)-
Peace advocate Man Hee Lee of HWPL is the second Korean to offer the White Rose of Peace
South America is home to a beautifully diverse culture and geography. It also has a deep history of colonization and inner conflict. Today, however, a growing peace movement is changing the face of the whole continent.
In November 2013, HWPL engaged 15 youth organizations from the local community in Tijuana, Mexico to curb violence and conflict by facilitating a Peace Walk focused on dialogue, reflection, and action. Youth conferred about how to promote non-violent initiatives and marched in a peace rally to assert their cause. As the desire for peace co ntinues to build, media outlets in the Americas have also recognized their responsibility as an instrument of communication to the masses.
Mexico extends its global reach as the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world through Telemundo and Azteca TV, internationally renowned media outlets that have featured HWPL peace efforts on several occasions on their networks.
