Center for Peace Education (CPE)
||The PX or Chi Rho symbolizes Christ, the great Teacher of peace, justice and love. The dove is a universal peace symbol. The circle is our world and Mother Earth, the common home of all humans, whose unity with the Earth and with each other is imperative for a life of peace.
The Center’s mission is to help advance a culture of peace through education.
A culture of peace is a set of values, modes of behavior and ways of life that reflects respect for life and for human dignity, rejects violence in all its forms, prevents violent conflicts by tackling their root causes, and recognizes the importance of cooperation, tolerance and dialogue.
