About the Founders:

Nancye Blair Black and Anna Clarke have been working together for several years to explore the role and practice of peace education and global citizenship in the digital age. The Lichen Peace Project is their collaborative effort to turn research and vision into action and mission. They received an Ursula Thrush Peace Seed Grant from the American Montessori Society in 2016 to use toward the creation of the Lichen Peace Project’s inaugural program: the Alpaca Box Challenge.
