On episode three, we welcome Kristina Hulvershorn, teacher, humane educator, and author of the recently released children’s book, Secret of the Troublemakers.
Kristina is the Indianapolis Program Manager at HEART (Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers), and the Director of Humane and Restorative Programs at Peace Learning Center.
Peace Learning Center educates, inspires and, empowers people to live peacefully. Their vision is to build a community of peace where respect is primary and justice is real. They work directly with schools, community nonprofits, businesses, juvenile correctional facilities, and faith groups to facilitate peace education sessions.
HEART’s mission is to develop a generation of compassionate youth who create positive change for animals, people, and the natural world. HEART’s services are specially designed to provide a combined focus on human rights, animal protection, and environmental preservation. They are the only full- service provider of humane education in the New York City, Chicago, Indianapolis and Portland areas, and they offer our services at no cost to public schools and non-profit agencies.
It was our pleasure to spend some time with Kristina to learn more about her important work and discuss her new book. Listen to our episode to hear how Kristina is making a difference in our world, and how her book is redefining the term, "troublemaker."
