More than 6700 children have attended workshops delivered by the Peace Learning Center since the nonprofit began running programs centered on teaching nonviolent conflict resolution in association with area schools ten years ago.
In recognition of Peace Learning Center’s continuing contribution to the Milwaukee community, Mayor Tom Barrett declared September 16, 2012 Peace Learning Center Day in Milwaukee, stating that “Peace Learning Center builds communities of mutual respect, cooperation, personal accountability, and tolerance, and is dedicated to teaching children and adults to think differently about conflict.”
On September 16, Peace Learning Center will celebrate its achievements over the past ten years with a free Open House that includes games, refreshment, guided nature hikes and fun for all! Members of the community – both young and old – are invited to attend this free event to learn more about nonviolent conflict resolution and Peace Learning Center’s programs. The event will incorporate recognition of the founders, supporters, partners, and past Board members, as well as a brief presentation on the mission and programs of the Peace Learning Center.
The Open House will take place on September 16, 2012, from 3 PM to 5 PM at the Friends Meeting House, 3224 N. Gordon Place in Milwaukee.
Peace Learning Center believes that all children can be peacemakers. Reaching over 6700 youngsters in the organization’s first ten years is a great beginning!
