When I heard the band, “Her Brothers” play at the Mighty Peace Day Concert they took my breath away. These three young men were using their creative talent in music to help inspire and influence others to be a part of reshaping what “normal” looks like in the lives of women. Band member Gabe Penner and I discuss safe language, bystander awareness, sex trafficking, changing our dialogue and supporting each other as human beings.
JRDN, Croucher is a Canadian R&B recording artist who also currently serves as a Youth Ambassador for D250 and was a delegate in the Citizen Voices program. I got the chance to talk to JRDN as well as Ham the Kid, a speaker, poet and YouTube star, about why its important to share our stories and how we can help youth overcome negative situations and find happiness and success.

On this episode of Cara Jones Speaks I take part in Might Peace Day, a small We Day where founder of Free the Children, Craig Kielburger, comes together with youth and artists such as Neverest, speakers like Spencer West and individuals who want to change the world for the better. If you could go back and talk to your younger self, what advice would you give? How would you mentor yourself to be the change?
