[title size=”1″]About Søren Lerche[/title]
Søren Lerche was raised as a pacifist in Denmark, but radicalized by political violence when he was 20 years old. He spent the next 8 years as a militant left-wing extremist, leading violent gangs of communists and anarchists against neo-nazi groups in Europe, and becoming immersed in a brutal drug-trade.
A prison stint evoked an introspection that revealed the futility of fighting hate and violence with more of the same. After 10 years of soul-searching, Søren realized that empathy and understanding for all human beings had the capacity to build a peaceful existence from the inside-out.
Today Søren is an Educator and Project Manager who mentors at-risk youth and brings international peace agents together, empowering human beings to care for each other worldwide.
