On Monday September 19th Idaho Peace Coalition’s Liz Paul and Kathryn Railsback conducted Peacekeeper Training  at a place in Garden City called JoyfulTea. We used role-playing scenarios to re-familiarize ourselves with Peacekeeper Responsibilities. Always our objective is to conduct safe and informative demonstrations. Our hope is to continue educating ourselves and others on alternatives to violence in conflict resolution. We model the calm approach that is necessary in dealing with issues and concerns. We want to increase everyone’s awareness that there are peaceable, constructive and cooperative alternatives to violence. We even make efforts to persuade our Elected Representatives to the Idaho Legislature and the US Congress that they too can make a difference with a more civil and cooperative approach to problem solving. The photos show Liz Paul writing participant suggestions and with Katheryn Railsback defusing a somewhat combative exchange between demonstration observers, and an image showing all attendees.
