Carter Center, Berklee College of Music Collaborate on 'Love is the Answer'

A new music video calling for peace and love debuted at the Carter Center Human Rights Defenders Forum on June 21. Written and performed by Breeze the Voice and co-produced with Berklee College of Music and the Center’s Human Rights Program, “Love Is the Answer” promotes the forum’s central theme: that violence begets violence and that only compassion and love will solve the challenges we face.
