The answer to the hate, violence and

racial divisions that threaten to tear us apart is a multitude of peace leaders.


So believes Steve Tumolo, co-founder of Heart to Heart in Merchantville, whose mission is to educate and train peace leaders, from people about to re-enter society from prison to the parents of at-risk children in poor neighborhoods.


Heart to Heart trains individuals and small groups in how to respond to hate and division with lessons of the heart—to replace judgement with empathy, hate

with love, and violence with peaceful resistance.
