If our schools today are to produce truly global citizens, then that puts a heavy burden on educators to stimulate critical thinking about the critical issues of the day – war and peace, global conflict and inequality, issues of gender, race, class, and so on. It’s a long list. Teaching for Peace is a new web resource where we bring it all together, and provide easy-to-use, practical classroom lessons as well as comprehensive links to resources for peace education.
Peace it Together unites youth from opposing sides of a conflict for a program of dialogue and filmmaking. The films they co-create are used as peace-building tools to advance reconciliatory approaches to ending the conflict.

Delving behind Canada’s veneer of multiculturalism and tolerance, Policing Black Lives traces the violent realities of anti-blackness from the slave ships to prisons, classrooms and beyond. Robyn Maynard provides readers with the first comprehensive account of over four hundred years of state-sanctioned surveillance, criminalization and punishment of Black lives in Canada.
Keep in mind that as White people, whether as an Actor, Ally or Accomplice, we are still part of the ‘oppressor class’. This means we have to be very creative in flipping our privilege to help Black, Brown and Indigenous peoples.
