This program focuses on how to speak the language of peace and spread the word! People everywhere need to know that “applied peace building” is a new and powerful science. What are the politics of peace? Have you heard about the Student Peace Alliance? It’s important to put more action into activism by learning which programs you can get behind. From grassroots to government, there are organizations in countless cultures around the globe that are taking on the challenges that could stimulate major global change. You’ll hear about:

  • Robert Redford’s film Lions for Lambs – a call to question what’s true
  • The Peace Alliance, its mission, and its presence in all 50 states
  • what it could mean to our country to have a Department of Peace
  • why thinking of peace as technicolor and vital makes it more powerful
