Since 1981, LFFP has answered our nation’s culture of violence with a culture of peacemaking. At more than 35 sites around Greater Washington, participants learn practical peace-building skills, from nonviolent communication and conflict resolution to restorative justice and environmental stewardship. In classrooms, after school, and at summertime Peace Camps, children and youth express their ideas and fears in safe, centering spaces where respect and kindness are the rule. Peace Circles in shelters, faith centers, correctional facilities, and other locations allow adults to unpack important community issues while building relationships rooted in trust and empathy. Games, art, drama, and outdoor education keep the curriculum fun for everyone, including scores of trained volunteers who help “spread the peace virus” to more than 6,000 people each year. Policy alone will not heal our nation; we must all learn compassion and respect for others.
