A Peace Center Program Update
We are so fortunate to have close ties with the Peace Center of Langhorne. As a reminder, the Peace Center’s mission is to educate, empower and support individuals and organizations in efforts to prevent violence, promote the peaceful resolution of conflict and foster inclusive, equitable and safe communities, locally, nationally, and worldwide. Their programs are designed to help reduce violence and conflict in our schools, homes and communities through a multicultural, community-based approach. Here’s a brief overview of a few upcoming programs:
