Kids As Peacemakers: Children's Mural Project

On Earth Peace is excited to announce a partnership with Kids As Peacemakers, Inc. to encourage discussion, understanding, and action by kids of all ages to reduce violence.  By encouraging children to envision peace in their community and world, the program helps children engage in a consensus decision making process to design and create a mural to be displayed in their communities.  Churches, schools, and social organizations are encouraged to educate for peace and create murals as part of their children's programs. This program combines education and witness for peace in a way that can involve all generations in the learning.

If you are interested in receiving more information about the Children's Mural Project or would like to explore how this project might work in your community, please call 607-387-3509, or email Marie Rhoades, program coordinator for peace education
