Perspectives on Peace Education: Miami Volunteers

So far this year, Miami’s Everglades Correctional Institution has more inmates participating in the Peace Education Program than any other correctional facility in the U.S. Volunteer facilitator Lucy Collins says, “One inmate has been in prison since he was 18. A counselor told us that until this guy started taking the program he never talked to anyone, he never had a smile on his face. He just kept to himself, for 46 years. And now he is never without a smile!”
