Peace Program

Peace Program

The Peace Programs seek to address the problems with our country’s current militaristic approach to conflict, provide meaningful tools to nonviolently engage in conflict and oppression, and share about the power of nonviolence.

  • Educational work including workshops, discussion groups, films, and other presentations. We offer these to the public around the state and we also partner with different groups who contract us to work with them. This has included schools, colleges, faith-based institutions, and businesses. Nonviolence 101, Nonviolent Conflict Engagement, Children in Civil Rights Movement, and Mindfulness for Activists. See the full list of workshops in the Educational Program Catalog.
  • Collaborating with and supporting other local efforts to expose and dismantle the military industrial complex while building alternatives to violence including membership in the Vermont Stands for a World Beyond War Coalition.
  • Events around drone surveillance and weaponization domestically and abroad.
  • Annual anti-war events and actions including Hiroshima and Nagasaki Days, Veterans Day, !Presente¡ School of the Americas protest, Tax Day, and Border of Lights.
