Our Approach

We utilize a model originally put forth by educator and activist Herb Kohl, and inspired by the work of Myles Horton during the U.S. Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.
The essence of the model is to foster the community’s discovery of its peace & justice needs and goals without us imposing any particular point of view.
Above all, we promote non-violent solutions to social, economic and environmental injustices the community identifies as priorities.
We believe that important as this work is, it should also be fun. Helping to create a healthy and more beautiful world needs to be a joyful act.
