Alumni Spotlight

Alumna works for peace in Sao Paolo, Brazil

Katie Coldwell (Arts & Sciences '09) was one of the first students to get involved at the Center for Peacemaking after we opened our doors in January 2008. After graduating, Katie decided to join the Maryknoll Lay Missioners where she spent four years working with women in one of Brazil's largest women's prisons. She was recently featured in the Fall/Winter 2014 edition of Marquette Magazine.

Publications & Presentations

Two presentations at prestigious public health conference

Representatives of the Center for Peacemaking recently presented at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA) in New Orleans. 

Peace Works program reduces youth violence
  • This presentation highlighted the impact of Ripple Effect Milwaukee (REM) in reducing youth violence. REM uses the Center for Peacemaking's Peace Works curriculum and Marquette students visit local Boys and Girls Club sites to teach the modules to youth.

    The presenters included Patrick Kennelly (Marquette University), Staci Young (Medical College of Wisconsin), and Adrian Thomas (Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee).
Nonviolent resistance to war in Afghanistan
  • This presentation covered the work of the Afghan Peace Volunteers, a grassroots effort of multiethnic Afghans, to promote change, deescalate violence, and resist war.

    Center for Peacemaking staff have visited the Peace Volunteers and published on their work. Students have also become familiar with their work through Skype conversations and by hosting solidarity demonstrations on Marquette's campus.

    The presenters included Patrick Kennelly (Marquette University) and Emily Malloy (Aurora Medical Group).
