Peace Ambassador Training

BBBON member Jennae Wallach has been working on peace building and peace education in Oakland for the past several years. As part of that work, she learned about the Global Peace Ambassador Training sponsored by the Shift Network (TSN). Jennae writes, “It is an amazing but expensive course. For the last five years, TSN has honored my request to make the training available to anyone who lives or works in Oakland at significantly discounted rates. There are approximately sixty of who have taken earlier iterations of the course. It has been a bonding experience and given us a common set of principles, concepts and language to discuss our peace building efforts.

“This year I asked them to expand the offer to anyone who lives, works, or contributes to Oakland. The last phrase includes anyone who worships in Oakland so I am now in conversation with faith-based organizations.

“Feel free to call me with any questions. In case it makes any difference, I don’t work for or receive any remuneration from The Shift Network.”
