Follow Along on our Journey to Cambodia
Chicago-based Peace Fellows will travel to Phnom Penh April 3rd-13th 2015
While Chicago and Phnom Penh have distinct histories of structural and interpersonal violence, they share a common approach to community peacebuilding. Youth in both cities practice restorative justice to transform harm, promote civic engagement, and facilitate community healing. In an effort to connect and amplify these efforts, the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum (JAHHM) and the Peace Institute of Cambodia (PIC) will facilitate a cultural exchange through which youth ages 17-28 will explore the roots of violence and the practice of peacebuilding in their respective cities and envision opportunities for cross-cultural collaboration.
