Peer Education and Community Empowerment (PEACE)

About PEACE

PEACE is a student led peer-to-peer education group. We are an organization ran by and for students from marginalized communities. We operate with a $5,700 budget to create educational workshops, community zines, art projects, and student organizing archive projects all in collaboration with community organizations on and off campus. The goal of these projects is to encourage critical consciousness and active allyship among different communities, and to advance, preserve, and uplift the work of organizers, organizations and marginalized students and communities on the UC Davis campus.

Organizations, departments, classrooms, and others-you can share these resources with your classrooms, organizations and more to start critical conversations about the positions of diverse communities within the university.

PEACE Autonomous Website/Digital Archive
The PEACE cohort has a second website that is autonomous from UC Davis. This site is a new PEACE project that will serve as an archive of the work of radical, grassroots organizers and communities on the UC Davis campus, created to create institutional memory. Here you can find PEACE’s zine archive, as well as written, photographic, and video archives of the organizing efforts of marginalized communities on UC Davis’ campus.
