Kit Cummings and the Power of Peace Project

In 2010 Kit founded the Power of Peace Project. Using the experience he gained resolving conflict in some of the most dangerous areas in the world, he applies his principles to bring about change in prisons, schools, corporations and the faith-based community. On MLK Day, 2020, Kit was recognized by the NAACP receiving their Martin Luther King, Jr. Living the Dream Award for his contribution to civil rights and his work with at-risk youth and prison reform. He was also appointed to the Georgia House of Representatives Gang Prevention and Intervention Commission as a result of the passing of the anti-gang bill HB750 under Chairman Rep. Carl Gilliard. The majority of Kitโ€™s work now focuses on interrupting and redirecting at-risk youth. Kit has been in over a hundred prisons, jails, detention centers, and rehab facilities and worked with over ten thousand prisoners and offenders. He has journeyed on tours through Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America, and has negotiated peace between some of the most notorious gangs inside the U.S. prison system. He delivered an address about his powerful peace projects at the Gandhi Global Peace Summit in Durban, South Africa to representatives from the Gandhi, King, and Mandela organizations, as well as other iconic peacemakers from around the world. Kit has taken his Forty Days to Freedom program into dangerous La Mesa prison in Tijuana, Mexico to teach prisoners nonviolence, as well as working with addicts and at-risk youth in some of the toughest areas of that cartel war-torn border city. Kit has planted seeds of peace all around the world. Kit has authored six books, including the award-winning Peace Behind the Wire, a Nonviolent Resolution which has been endorsed by the King Family. His latest book, The New Convict Code, Bringing Peace to the Streets from Behind the Wire, flips the script on prison reform and aims to shatter the pipeline from schools to prisons. www.PowerofPeaceProject.com

When I witness young people laying down their lives to rescue others from darkness, it gives me hope for a young generation. Those are some of my favorite stories that I tell in The New Convict Code.

When this happens, it's usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it's been deleted.

In The New Convict Code, I tell many stories about lives I've seen changed behind the wire. This is Chewy, one of the first brothers that I met in my very first prison in Georgia. When I met Chewy, he had served 15 years of his life sentence. His story is a moving and inspiring one. Chewy went from selling drugs to being known as so spiritual that no prisoners dared to touch him. His story, like many others from behind the wire, is one worth sharing, one to be inspired by, and one that I hope can make an impact on those who hear it.

I am very grateful for those who have read The New Convict Code, appreciate it and have great words to say about it.

It is a book borne out of 12 years of working with more than ten thousand offenders and powerful lessons learned along the way. And what we've learned and done in the prison system has led us to be able to lay the groundwork for a future with less violence, declining prison populations and a more sound and just prison system.
