International Peace Force director visits Midland Chapter
MIDLAND, Mich. - Peacekeepers are working to make a positive impact from here and afar.
The Nonviolent Peace Force executive director came from France to Midland today as a part of her U.S. tour.
She talked with the local chapter here in Midland about peacebuilding and conflict resolution.
They're things the local chapter is working to bring into area schools.
They're also fundraising to help during international conflict.
"Some people would say the idea of trying to transform the world's response to conflict, you're never going to do that because there's so much conflict going on in the world, but we strongly believe it and so does the nonviolent peace force," said Midland Peace Force head Jeanne Schaller.
The Midland chapter is the most active Nonviolent Peace Force chapter in the U.S.
This is an international organization which started in India in 2002.
