Longtime peace education community member Diane Scanlon dedicates one of her newest songs, Nothing Changes, to the International Institute on Peace Education and peace educators around the world.  We are delighted to share with you the video of the song below.  Diane is an inspiring songwriter, performer, and dedicated peace educator with a passion for pursuing change through music.  We hope you find her music, voice, and message as uplifting as we do in these challenging times where hope is needed more than ever.

Dedication from Diane Scanlon

Dear IIPE friends and fellow peace educators,

I was told by Pete Seeger to stop asking myself if the song is good and start asking what is the song good for.  This video is dedicated to all of you — because nothing changes- until it changes.  Keep the fires burning.
