UPDATE: Recording and full list of guest added 9/28/22, 2 p.m. ET
We Act Radio is launching a brand new series focusing on peace building and undoing violence. Discussion will explore often unchallenged ideas about “extremism” and “security,” what it means to build safe communities, and how violence embedded in our city, nation, and globe frequently goes unremarked. Our first confirmed guest is Lashonia Thompson-El, executive director of Peace for DC. Also joining the first segment: Nneka Grimes, operations manager for DC Peace Academy; Nakeda Gilbert, DC Peace Academy Director of Learning, was unable to join live this week but will be included in future programming.
