Peter Paul and Mary – Don’t Laugh at Me | Download

We are inspired everyday by the human rights legacy of our founder, Peter Yarrow, of Peter, Paul and Mary, by the children and adults with whom we work; and by the power of music to touch the hearts of all and create new opportunities for building community together. We believe in the development of the whole child and that we must teach children the social and emotional skills they need to succeed in school and in life. We believe that each child, in each of our communities around the world, deserves to live in a safe, respectful, compassionate community, free of bullying, hatred and violence.

Of course, Operation Respect was founded in response to the powerful lyrics of “Don’t Laugh at Me.” Through the links on this page you will find the videos, songs and more that inspire us to keep on “keepin’ on” as Peter, Paul and Mary would say. Feel free to send us some of your favorites and join us on Facebook and Twitter to find more.
