Arkansas Peace Week kicked into action with more than 25 events on September 16, and their focus is on reaching school-aged children in Central Arkansas. The goal is to get lessons of peace, nonviolence, and conflict resolution into the curriculum for a week. Lessons include peace-related readings, acting out conflict resolutions, and learning about historical nonviolent figures. Arkansas Peace Week’s Bob Estes says, “Teach some of the tools . . . to reduce the conflict, reduce the violence, make more peace in our community.”

Local news has been covering the action, as you can see in the videos below and on their website here and here.
