RPEC works to foster peace & justice in the Richmond region. Its mission is to build just, inclusive and nonviolent communities through education and action. RPEC teaches conflict resolution to schools, community groups, and social agencies all across the region. These conflict resolution programs teach people healthy ways to prevent and resolve conflict. RPEC is the only group locally offering Healing and Rebuilding Our Communities, an intensive group-healing program for people who have experienced trauma. RPEC’s Richmond Youth Peace Project empowers teenagers to be leaders for nonviolence and social change. RPEC also educates about peaceful alternatives to war and works for racial justice. All of RPEC’s programs give people and communities the tools they need to effect change and to build a more peaceful and just community and world.
