Helping people understand the roots of war, violence, and conflict by hearing the voices of witnesses and helping communities to take compassionate action. This is what Voices Education Project
is all about. I was a founder of this project that provides resources to teachers and students who are exploring the subjects of war and violent conflict, peace and peace-making. The vision:
Acknowledging that conflict is inevitable, we envision a world in which nations, communities, and individuals move beyond polarization and destruction, instead viewing conflict as an opportunity to create understanding, empathy and positive change. Through education, the arts, and self-expression, Voices aims to transform how we respond to, engage in, and recover from conflict. By working directly with instructors and students we strive to model pedagogical methods and social processes that challenge and enrich the arts, humanities and social science curricula.
