In the News

Peace Works program featured on WPR

Wisconsin Public Radio recently featured the Center for Peacemaking's Peace Works program on The Kathleen Dunn Show. The interview with Peace Works Coordinator Pam Stahler covered how Marquette University and Milwaukee Public Schools are partnering to teach nonviolence and conflict resolution to youth in Behavioral Reassignment (BR) schools.
Last year alone, the Peace Works program saw a decrease in student suspension rates by more than 90 percent, and more than 75 percent of the students had no suspensions after a year in the program. You can listen to the full interview at the link below.
