This month we feature Peter Alsop, a longtime CMN Member and Silver Business Sponsor! Peter is a nationally known singer/songwriter, lecturer and humorist with a Ph.D. in educational psychology. His family albums consistently win "Best Children's Album" of the year awards and his songs are used by thousands of parents, doctors, educators and other human service professionals to help families discuss sensitive issues such as sexual abuse, disabilities, loss and grief, codependency, self-worth, chemical dependency and family violence. His popular "Songs To Chew" podcast began with the column he wrote for CMN's "Pass It On!" Magazine.

Diversity and Inclusion

CMN stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement across the world. We are committed to cultivate a welcoming and affirming space, promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in our organization and the world at large. We recognize the positive power of music to shape children’s sense of fairness and justice, to teach the enormous importance of often-marginalized cultures to our music traditions, and to amplify the voices of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People Of Color), LGBTQI+ communities, and people of all abilities. We pledge to lead with humility, to continue our advocacy and support our members in theirs.
