The Peace Institute Seminar Series is tied to the peace garden project as part of Bakersfield College’s Peace Initiative. President Christian wanted to bring together intentional spaces for the community to be together and not be so polarized, these areas will provide space for reflection, meditation, and healing. BC received funding from the Patel Foundation, and currently, BC has doctors, educators, policy advisors, and rotary clubs, working together to create the physical spaces with the intention of creating community peace and understanding.
There are numerous studies that speak to the role women, especially mothers play in the peace and healing process. BC sees an opportunity for women in the community to take the lead and launch the Peace Institute Seminar Series during Women’s History Month in March 2021.
