The Richmond Peace Education Center is working actively in a variety of ways to build a more peaceful community in the Richmond, Virginia area. Initiated in 1980, the center has been the leading voice for nonviolence in the Richmond community for 36 years, offering programs on conflict resolution and violence prevention, racial reconciliation, and global issues. Through its workshops, public events, and conflict resolution training for youth and adults, the center is making a difference in the region. In the past two years alone, RPEC has organized or co-sponsored nearly 100 events and programs involving thousands of participants. The center has more than 1,000 members and runs several active programs, including:
In addition, the center publishes an informative bimonthly newsletter and links community members through its e-mail list serve.
At RPEC, our goals are ambitious—we want to contribute to building a much less violent and more equitable region. We are having a measurable, and a growing, impact, through our conflict resolution programs, the Richmond Youth Peace Project for teenagers, and our racial justice initiative. We also educate and organize around global peace issues.
RPEC values racial, cultural, and economic diversity on its Board of Directors. Also since the mid-1990s, RPEC has continuously had one youth member with full voting rights on its board.
