“Two Passions for Peace & Justice: Kids Mediating for Kids and A World Beyond War”
Kathy Beckwith will share stories from her experience working as a school mediation trainer and mediation coach for over two decades. She says, “Youth are amazingly creative and compassionate, and become heroes when we give them the tools to resolve conflict through mediation. And the ‘heroes’ are not just the mediators!” Yet Kathy has also learned through startling conversations with youth, that they and their attitudes toward violence are impacted deeply by their picture of war – one she believes is more hype than reality, and is undermining the work of learning to resolve conflict without violence – in our homes and schools and in our world. Kathy will share some of the research she has done for her book, released in December 2015, A MIGHTY CASE AGAINST WAR: What America Missed in U.S. History Class and What We (All) Can Do Now, and will challenge us with questions that she believes can change the world.
