Grant from Sommers Family Trust supports Peace Works

We are excited to announce that the Center for Peacemaking has received a grant from the Sommers Family Trust to support Marquette students who help facilitate the Peace Works program in Milwaukee schools.

Peace Works teaches middle and high school students peacemaking and communications skills. Likewise, the Marquette students who serve as Nonviolent Educators in this program likewise gain valuable skills and experience integrating concepts of peace and conflict resolution into a classroom setting.

We are sincerely grateful to the Sommers Family Trust for funding and recognizing the importance of nonviolence education programs and developing student peacemakers.
