Peer Education and Community Empowerment (PEACE)

About PEACE

P.E.A.C.E., short for Peer Education and Community Empowerment, is a student led peer-to-peer education group. The purpose of PEACE is to create a space where students can build critical consciousness as a means for the liberation of oppressed communities. Previously, PEACE used to facilitate workshops for different groups on campus. However, after reevaluation we have decided to change PEACE’s traditional format. PEACE will now host quarterly workshops that introduce communities to ideas of intersectionality and social justice. These workshops and events will be open to the UC Davis community. In addition, the PEACE cohort will create educational programs and a publication series with community organizations around the issues prominent in our communities.
