Previous Interviews


“What if all kids could start out thinking that difference is great?  That’s awesome we don’t all match, that we don’t have the same ideas or have to look exactly alike?  What if we could inspire our future citizens to promote inclusivity and acceptance?”  When you hear Hannah Lavon, who created her company Pals Socks, you will realize how pairs of colorful mismatched socks for babies, toddlers, tweens and adults carry out the mission of “Even if we don’t match, let’s be pals.”   Imagine the curiosity and exploration created when a kid wears a pair of mismatched socks such as lion and zebra, cat and dog, moose and bear, milk and cookies.  Pals is definitely a fun way to learn that friends can be different than me.


Music in Common

"By facilitating environments of openness and expression, Music in Common embodies compassion and connection in a unique and creative way. Music in Common's mission is to "Empower Youth and Communities against hate through facilitated dialogue and collaborative songwriting." But when you hear the youth leaders of Music in Common speak, you'll realize that the impact goes well beyond that. It is both youth-led and transformational, where participants' identities are affirmed and empowered. There is a lot to learn from Music in Common. We hope you explore their programs and enjoy their interview with Charter for Compassion."
