Episode Info:

How might we get better at combating violence and injustice in our communities? The Centre for Peace and Justice at Burman University in Lacombe believes that the solution lies in building bridges--not walls--through the use of education and dialogue that engages and respects people across cultural, social, and political differences. Glen Graham founded the Centre for Peace and Justice at three years ago and has been running a variety of programs with the aim of fostering more inclusive and harmonious communities through education and dialogue. Maiden Manzanal-Frank has been a part of the Centre’s journey as well, contributing her consulting skills and community development knowledge to support the centre’s mission.

In episode seven of Pause, we sat down with Maiden and Glen to talk about their work through the Centre for Peace and Justice. They reflect together about:

  • Current trends in our communities during a time of uncertainty;

  • Why we need a centre for peace and justice;

  • How the centre is using education and dialogue to foster more inclusive and respectful communities;

  • Tensions and challenges they face in this work; and

  • Where they see hope and possibilities.
