The "eyes" have it on this week's episode of Peace Fund Radio! Peace Fund Founder Adrian Paul and PFR Co-host Ethan Dettenmaier welcome Patrick Esquerre (Founder and Board Member of the Essilor Vision Foundation), Stephen Shawler (President of the Essilor Vision Foundation), Bob Colucci (President of the Independent Distribution Division for Essilor of America, Inc.), and Raymond King (Director and Chairman for Kids Vision for Life) for an informative and extremely informed roundtable discussion about what their organizations are doing to combat vision problems and their wide-ranging consequences among children.

Then Adrian tells us all about our latest Gloria Barron Prize-winning Hero of the Week, Sruthi Ramaswami, who founded the Mitty Advocacy Project to mobilize other young people to use political advocacy to accomplish positive social changes through legislation. Her movement now thrives in more than 50 schools nationwide, focusing on issues including poverty, education, and human trafficking.
