The International Corrections & Prisons Association (ICPA) covered the Peace Education Program in the 2018 summer edition of Beyond the Wall, its industry newsletter that is distributed to correctional professionals across the world.
In this new blog, UK Peace Education Program (PEP) volunteer Mary Dalgleish, writes about how “the PEP addresses the core of a human being, looking at the beauty and value of each person, not addressing what’s good or bad, right or wrong or trying to ‘fix’ people. It focuses on developing a positive approach to life; bypassing negative thought processes that can undermine an individual’s self-worth and behavior.”
Prem Rawat recently visited inmates at Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles and Metro-West Detention Center in Miami, where the Peace Education Program is helping hundreds of inmates turn their lives around.
In partnership with community centres, activists, schools and youth clubs, the Peace Education Program will be made available to all Londoners over the age of 14 to help tackle the rise of violent crime across the capital.
