Peer Education and Community Empowerment (PEACE)


Peer Education and Community Empowerment (PEACE) is a peer-to-peer education group in the Cross Cultural Center dedicated to building critical consciousness and active allyship among communities on campus. One of the ways we do so is by holding workshops for organizations and clubs on campus about social identities, multiple dimensions of identity, and allyship in practice. In order to request a PEACE workshop, please complete this PEACE workshop menu. Workshop guidelines are listed below and additional details regarding workshops and how to request one can be found on the workshop menu form.

What We Do

We offer 1.5 hour and 2 hour workshops. Workshops must be a minimum of 1.5 hours as we feel this is the shortest amount of time in which a successful workshop can be completed.

Available Workshops: 

Social Justice From Theory to Practice 101 (1.5 - 2 hrs): 

This training increases social awareness and advocacy skills by exploring key social identities and concepts, and equipping participants with the knowledge needed to effectively advocate for change.

Social Justice from Theory to Practice 102 (1.5 - 2 hrs):

Our program delves into White Supremacy Culture, featuring influential figures and interactive case studies, aimed at actively dismantling systemic racism.

Allyship 101: Ally as a Verb (1.5 - 2 hrs): 

This workshop guides participants on using their privilege positively and practicing active listening to turn good intentions into actionable support for marginalized communities.
