One Common Unity breaks cycles of violence and builds compassionate, healthy communities through the transformative power of music, arts, and peace education.

Our flagship program, Fly By Light (FBL), trains the next generation of youth leaders in social-emotional literacy and non-violent communication and empowers them to use art, music, and creative expression to create positive social change in their communities.


“I was not doing well in school but Fly By Light made me a more confident person and more confident in my abilities. It is the people within the program, who over time, helped me change into the person I really want to be.”

Leighton, Fly By Light Participant

“Before Fly By Light, I was not open to meeting new people or expressing myself. Now, I am very open to getting to know others. I have learned to accept others for who they are and in return, I hope they too will accept me for all that I am.”

Nardia, Fly By Light Alumna

“Fly By Light is a place where I can address the conflicts in my life, without feeling judged or popping off.”

“Fly By Light has helped me go to college and express myself. The program has helped me open up to people.”
