Peace Education

Presently, with our core partner, LFFP, we are working in Walker Jones Elementary School offering peace education and seeking to build in our other peace team programs.

In 2012-2013, the DC Peace Team worked with an established National Homecomers Academy program at Aiton Elementary, located in northeast DC. The program focused on a group of fourth-fifth graders. Over a ten week span, the DCPT offered weekly peace education activities with our core partner Little Friends for Peace and introductions to restorative justice.

DCPT hosted multiple screenings of the film The Interrupters, a documentary about the unarmed civilian peacekeeping work of Cure Violence in the streets of Chicago.
