First up, we meet Fred Arment, . Since 2009, ICP has been building a
network of communities great and small that prioritize peaceful
coexistence. Fred has also been consulting with the United Nations
Economic and Social Council for NGOs for the past four years.

Then it's James Siguru Wahutu, a professor in NYUs Peace and Conflict
Studies program. When a conflict reaches an acute level of violence, it
can be difficult to communicate the gravity of the situation to people
outside that communitys borders. Wahutu studies how journalists have
historically covered genocides and other forms of mass violence in
countries like Kenya and Rwanda. Hes found that even deciding to use the
word genocide is crucial to how people confront international conflicts.

Learning about conflict resolution and social justice in far-flung places
can also help us envision solutions in our own backyards. Rivera Sun
gathers solution-based examples from around the world in her work at
Nonviolence News. She also facilitates workshops in strategy and
nonviolent action internationally.
