What if we could harness the power of communication to unite rather than divide? To diffuse these dangerous dynamics and build an active peace? Research and practice show that this is possible. Join us for an Amplify Peace one hour Live Zoom coaching session and Q&A, with Rachel Brown, Founder and Executive Director of Over Zero. We’ll peel back the layers to really understand how communication moves societies toward violence, and how it can be leveraged to create an active peace.
