As a successful artist and activist, Peter Yarrow’s talent is legendary. His gift for songwriting has produced some of the most moving songs Peter, Paul & Mary have recorded, including Day Is Done, The Great Mandala and Light One Candle. His musical creativity has always gone hand in hand with his commitment to social justice and equity in society.
And today, he’s reaching a whole new generation with his music and advocacy.
All of his creative and organizational achievements haven’t caused Yarrow to rest on his laurels. On the contrary, they have given him the wisdom and the experience to address what he considers to be perhaps his most meaningful undertaking to date. This project is based on his passionate belief that music, with its power to build community and catalyze change, can be a particularly powerful organizing tool as well as a source of inspiration for children.
Yarrow’s most recent efforts are focused on a non-profit he founded in 1999 called Operation Respect, which disseminates a free program utilizing music and video along with curricular materials designed to establish a safe, compassionate and nurturing environment in schools and summer camps across America. Operation Respect’s classroom-based program, “Don’t Laugh At Me” (DLAM) is available free to teachers, parents and all educational advocates through the generosity of the McGraw-Hill companies via www.operationrespect.org. Now utilized in over 20,000 schools in the US and internationally, DLAM has been hailed by the educational community as a key response to the challenge of bullying and the many forms of physical and emotional violence among children and youth.
