Yes, Peace Can Be Taught: Education Practices for Peacebuilding
Education can be a driver of conflict that fuels grievances, xenophobia, and misinformation, or it can address conflict dynamics in the United States and contribute to peacebuilding. Join the Alliance for Peacebuilding on July 28th in a discussion about working with educators and state and city governments to align the U.S. history curriculum with a peacebuilding approach. We will present Kate English and Patricia Shafer whose organizations provide peace education to young people, including training, mentoring, and teaching conflict history and prevention.

We will also engage in a discussion of the recent bill introduced by Senators Chris Coons and John Cornyn, the “Civics Secures Democracy Act”, which aims to restore the importance placed on civics education in American classrooms and expand access to civics and history education.

Speakers:
Patricia Shafer , Executive Director, NewGen Peacebuilders
Kate English, Executive Director, Educators’ Institute for Human Rights (EIHR)
Liz Hume, Acting CEO, Alliance for Peacebuilding (Moderator)

Jul 28, 2021 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
