Peace Fellows Spring 2016 Program at Hofstra Univiersity starts on February 25.

What is the LI Alliance/CCE 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 of conflict, nuclear proliferation, poverty and climate change that we face. Through dialogue, Peace Fellows will Reimagine a U.S. Foreign Policy for the 21st Century and Beyond. 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 ten-week program will include readings, weekly meetings with briefings and discussions, lectures, training in deliberative dialogue techniques, and an assessment of the program.
