Bridge the Divide Campaign

As PEP celebrates its first 50 years and prepares for the next 50, we remain committed to continuing to bridge the divide that far too often inhibits our kids from realizing their potential. To honor this moment in PEP’s history, this year’s PEP Rally for Kids provides a unique and special opportunity that involves one of our PEP heroes and champions, Bruce Perry, MD, PhD.

Recently, Dr. Perry co-authored a book with Oprah Winfrey titled, What Happened to You? Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing, which today sits at the top of the New York Times Hard Cover Non-Fiction Bestseller List. We are thrilled that Dr. Perry will join us for this year’s PEP Rally for Kids for a special virtual book tour event on Thursday, August 19, 2021. There will be a VIP virtual meet and greet event with Dr. Perry from 4:30 to 5:00 pm and the virtual book tour event from 5:15 to 6:15 pm.

Money raised from this year’s PEP Rally for Kids will help PEP Bridge the Divide through these lenses:

  • Connectivity – investments in digital connections and support for greater human connection;
  • Equity – investments in new practices to build greater diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging;
  • Agility – investments that allow PEP to experiment and innovate, discovering new ways to achieve better outcomes for kids and families.
