 What is the LI Alliance Peace Fellows program?  

The LI Alliance Peace Fellows Program is a peace education and issue advocacy program, in collaboration with Hofstra’s Center for Civic Engagement. It focuses on peace, nonviolence and alternatives to war and conflict in the context of Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.  Fellows will examine The US Role in the World – by exploring the issues of peace, nonviolence, human security, and the global challenges that we face in the 21st Century and by Reimaging U.S. Foreign Policy. Peace Fellows will engage in training to facilitate deliberative discussions on campus about current policies and possible alternatives. Fellows will participate in issue advocacy and organizing training. The semester-long program will include readings, weekly meetings with briefings and discussions, lectures, training in deliberative dialogue techniques, and an assessment of the program.
