Peace Education

22 August 1980

The 21st Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 19-23 August, 1980 in Hamden, Connecticut:

To WILPF and all Sections:

Whereas Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom around the world is concerned about education for peace and the need to share and learn from each other,

Be it resolved by the 21st International Congress, meeting in Hamden Connecticut, 19-23 August, 1980, that:

1) A communications network of all members writing and implementing peace education curricula to be formed by the International and its member sections, including the use of publications to promote the work of those involved;

2) Racism, because it is a major factor in destroying public education, be on the agenda of WILPF as an issue to be tied in with our peace education program and concerns including wherever possible seminars for teachers.
