Today, I'm excited to have Scott Layton on my blog.
PLC has rapidly expanded in the last year or two and was looking for a new accountant at the same time as I was looking for a job. Perfect timing! I’m sure many of you are like I was initially and have never heard of Preemptive Love Coalition. Well, over the next couple of paragraphs, I want to tell you what we are all about.
In short, Preemptive Love is a global movement of peacemakers changing the way we engage the world’s most polarizing conflicts by confronting fear with acts of love. This means that whether you are watching the events of blatant racism in Charlottesville, VA unfold on TV, or providing refugee aid to ISIS victims in Iraq, you love anyway and embrace conflict rather than run from it.
PLC also shows up. We want to be in the middle of coffee table conversations, conflict zones in Syria, and operating rooms providing lifesaving heart surgeries for Iraqi children. Wherever we are, we want to ask questions, risk failure, and be heard.
The final phase for PLC is getting out of the way. We want to provide food, water, and education for the oppressed, but we also want to bring peace, healing, and sustainable change to allow others to craft their own future. This means that when the time comes, we transition toward a mindset of relief to empowerment. We believe that local problems need local solutions.
This is just a brief breakdown of Preemptive Love’s mission. Our key areas of focus are heart surgeries for children, emergency relief, grants for small business owners, education, and peacemaking within the heart of war-torn Iraq and Syria.
Lastly, I want to state, as I am sure that you can clearly tell, that I am not a writer. Our team at PLC has some amazing writers producing incredible content that are official Preemptive Love Coalition material (this is not). I have only been with PLC for a short time, so if what is mentioned above intrigues you in the slightest, please check out our website at www.preemptivelove.org
or follow us on social media @preemptivelove and help wage peace with us.
