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.”
In response to a violent crime epidemic in London, Prem Rawat joined leaders, activists, and artists at Lambeth Community College on June 10 to announce a major rollout of the Peace Education Program. This video, produced by Celebrate Life Events, features perspectives on the event from some of the attendees.
