Paul K. Chappell, our workshop leader, is, surprisingly, a West Point graduate, Iraq War veteran, and former army captain. Along this unusual path, he became convinced that people need to be as well trained in waging peace as soldiers are in waging war. Chappell is the Peace Literacy Director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation and the author of six books, most recently Soldiers of Peace. Lecturing across the country and internationally, he also teaches college courses and workshops on Peace Literacy and Peace Leadership and leads a Peace Literacy curricular development team for k-12 and higher education.
*Peace literacy provides a practical skill set of insights based on empathy, conscience, reason, and realistic hope that inoculates us against manipulation and the seductive lies that spread hatred, dehumanization, and irrational fear. Learn more at Peace Literacy.
