In his owns words, " I seek to build trust and deep relationships throughout the region by connecting various groups and people together in meaningful ways in order to heal the historical wounds within Dayton".

This process of bringing our communities’ hurts to the surface where they can be healed by the air and light of forgiveness will reduce the intergenerational transmission of wounds, thereby positioning the generations after us with the ability to walk closer into living out Dr. King’s world.

Peace Heroes, Are You Ready To Go on a Star Quest? What Can the Mysteries of the Cosmos Teach Us about the Ways of Peace?

“Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.” 
― Carl Sagan
Cosmos

The Dayton International Peace Museum's Summer Peace Camp is in its 9th year. Each year the theme and focus are on peace-building skills our campers can apply not only during Peace Camp but in their daily lives.

Each day has a specific objective and peace message interwoven throughout the different components of camp.

All teachers and mentors are volunteers who have experience in the DIPM Peace Camp and in what it means to practice peace.

“UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World”

Wednesday, March 22, 7:00-8:30 Centerville High School Performing Arts Center

 
iu-1.jpeg

We all want empathetic and kind children who will go on to achieve great success and enjoy true happiness. But why do studies find that kids today are 40 percent less empathetic than they were thirty years ago? Why are kids less happy and more stressed than in past generations despite our love? Why is peer cruelty increasing and bullying starting at younger ages? And what can parents and educators do about it?

As an internationally recognized expert and author on children, teens, parenting, bullying and moral development, Dr.Michele Borba, Ed.D., addresses this issue head-on. In her new book, UnSelfie: Why Empathic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World. Borba provides tools parents need to teach their children empathy—and explains why caring for others is actually the essential skill that will give today’s young people a leg up the rest of their lives.

Michele Borba’s work aims to help strengthen children's character and resilience, build strong families, create compassionate school cultures, and reduce peer cruelty. Dr. Borba is a family and parenting contributor for the TODAY Show, and has appeared on the Early Show, Dr. Phil, CNN, and Fox News. . She is the author of over 22 parenting and educational books.

TIPS Students Create Peace Projects in their Communities and Schools

Teens Inventing Peaceful Solutions

The winter 2017 session of the TIPS program is under way at the Dayton International Peace Museum.  The number of students has doubled since last Spring's inaugural debut of the group with students from over 15 Dayton area middle and high schools. New teens are always welcome to join!

The group meets on Saturday afternoons at the Museum and ends every session with a 'family style' feast of good food and conversation.  Teen members are working with mentors on a challenging leadership training program in Kingian nonviolence.   In a recent meeting, Rick Polhamus, Ohio member of the Christian Peacemaker Teams,  shared stories of action and accompaniment in war zones that stretched each one's imaginative understanding of  the power of active nonviolence under the most challenging of circumstances. 

Recently, TIPS members provided leadership for World House Day and the Martin Luther King Day March.  Watch for the presence of TIPS members as they organize, speak and perform at other area events, create public art and share their discoveries through online postings and museum exhibits.  With focus , deep thought and humor, these teens take seriously Gandhi’s call for us to “Be the change we want to see in the world.”

The Voyage of the Phoenix


The Voyage of the Phoenix


 

Exhibit Highlights Family's Efforts to Promote Peace and Equality

The first “Voyage of the Phoenix” is the story of how one family on a carefree pleasure cruise became socially conscious activists. Created by Wilmington College Students, the exhibit is a story of transformation. During their trip around the world the Reynolds family became aware and opposed to racial inequality, global inequality, and nuclear testing. Barbara Reynolds eventually founded the Peace Resource Center at Wilmington College. This is an exhibit you’ll want to see and remember.

The Voyage of the Phoenix is on exhibit now in the central exhibit space at the Museum

 

The exhibit focuses on the 1958 peaceful protest by the family sailing into the Pacific nuclear testing zone to protest the use of nuclear weapons and the unknown dangers of radiation on people and the environment. The exhibit features original artifacts, photographs, and manuscripts from the trip.

 


The Ship

The Phoenix of Hiroshima was a 50-foot, 30-ton yacht that circumnavigated the globe and was later involved in several famous protest voyages.

Between its launch in 1954 and its sinking in 2010, the Phoenix carried a family around the world, was used to make protest voyages against nuclear weapons, was declared a Japanese national shrine, and ended up offered free on Craigslist, gutted and stripped of masts, phoenix figurehead and every identifying mark but the words "Phoenix of Hiroshima."
