Student Ambassador Program
New York Ambassador
We’d like to introduce Ophyr Hanan, an alumnus of the first graduating class of EMIS, who joined us as a Charney Resolution Center Ambassador and coordinator of the Ambassador Program. Together, our goal is to spread our mission of promoting peace and co-existence by opening our doors to any alumni with a project in mind that will help present the Center and spread its mission while also serving their communities around the world.
“I am very excited to be involved with the Charney Center and its mission. Ever since my time at EMIS, it has been difficult to find a platform that supports healthy dialogue and promotes peace on an international spectrum. I feel like with the Ambassador’s program, we have the power to achieve real change. Thanks to our experiences at EMIS and CRC, we can broaden people’s ways of thinking by expressing our perspectives on peace from a personal level. Anyone who has an idea, a project, or a message that he or she would like to present to their community, wherever they are in the world, please do not hesitate to contact me!”

Los Angeles, California (Oct 4, 2018). - The entertainment industry came in on Thursday evening to attend Creative Community for Peace’s (CCFP) signature event “Ambassadors of Peace.” The event took place at the home of entertainment attorney Aaron Rosenberg and television producer Danny Rose in Los Angeles.

At the event, CCFP honored Scooter Braun, Founder of SB Projects, Neil Jacobson, President of Geffen Records, and Aton Ben-Horin, Global Vice-President of A&R for Warner Music Group, as Ambassadors of Peace. They were recognized for their commitment to furthering music as a universal language that can connect and unify people all around the world.
"Whatever your thoughts on the Middle East, the music should never be silenced,” Ben-Horin said when accepting his award. “It’s not about picking sides”.
“The best way to change the world is to have an open and honest dialogue for peace and understanding on all sides,” Braun told Variety at the event.
“It’s about artists being free to perform wherever they want” said Jacobson.
Tzili Charney spoke at the event and encouraged the attendees to join CCFP while collaborating with the Leon Charney Resolution Center in order to practically implement their talent and voices to affect real change.
