Join us during this anniversary week of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to learn from an outstanding peacebuilder how to respond to the reality of conflict in this nuclear age.
Paul K. Chappell graduated from West Point, was deployed to Iraq, and left active duty as a Captain. He is the author of the Road to Peace series, a seven-book series about waging peace, ending war, the art of living, and what it means to be human. The first five published books in this series are Will War Ever End?, The End of War,Peaceful Revolution, The Art of Waging Peace, and The Cosmic Ocean.
Chappell serves as the Peace Leadership Director for the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. Lecturing across the country and internationally, he also teaches courses and workshops on Peace Leadership and Peace Literacy.
He grew up in Alabama, the son of a half-black and half-white father who fought in the Korean and Vietnam wars, and a Korean mother. Growing up in a violent household, Chappell has sought answers to the issues of war and peace, rage and trauma, and vision, purpose, and hope. His website is www.peacefulrevolution.com.
This event is free. Donations are gratefully accepted and will be shared equally by the MK Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence to support their work in Rochester and with the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation where Paul Chappellworks.
