New York City Map
The We Are Family Foundation Nestled in the heart of New York City, the We Are Family Foundation stands as a beacon of hope and inspiration, a charitable endeavour ignited by the visionary musician Nile Rodgers. At its core, this foundation embodies the belief that unity and shared purpose can illuminate a brighter path for humanity.
One of the foundation’s flagship events is the annual Just Peace Summit, a remarkable initiative that unites 35 teenagers hailing from diverse corners of the globe. These adolescents, with their distinct backgrounds and life journeys, converge in New York City for a transformative week of content and mentoring. Amid their diversity, they share a common aspiration: to catalyze positive change in our world.
The Just Peace Summit, a brainchild of the We Are Family Foundation, is a profound endeavour that seeks to empower young minds as catalysts of change within their communities. It is a platform that nurtures the seeds of peace through social action. These teenagers, coming from various walks of life, undergo a week-long journey of self-discovery, learning, and collaboration. They emerge from this experience not only with newfound knowledge but also with a sense of purpose, armed to make a lasting impact in their communities and beyond.
In parallel to this remarkable initiative, a unique map of New York City has been created, serving as a visual ode to the city that hosts the Just Peace Summit. This illustration, crafted for The We Are Family Foundation, elegantly portrays the iconic landmarks and locations that define the city. Rendered in a striking black-and-white palette, punctuated with subtle splashes of colour, it pays homage to New York’s indomitable spirit. From the resolute Statue of Liberty to the bustling Times Square, from the serenity of Central Park to the majestic Brooklyn Bridge, this map encapsulates the very essence of the city that never sleeps.
In the heart of New York City, the We Are Family Foundation’s mission finds its voice through the Just Peace Summit and the artistry of this unique map, championing the ideal of a better world, one empowered teenager and one vibrant city at a time.
