PeaceGAMES is an education and organizing resource that uses popular education methodologies and a multi-media approach to encourage reflection, discussion and action on the issue of U.S. militarism and its impact on women, both in the US and globally. The goals of PeaceGAMES are to: encourage critical thinking about U.S. militarism; provide a popular education tool that supports the process of diverse communities coming together to learn from each other's stories and collective wisdom; explore the complex dynamics of gender, race, sex and class that are at the core of U.S. foreign and military policy; deepen the conversation among broad progressive constituencies about the gendered impacts of unbridled militarism and war; encourage the development of messages and strategies within the peace movement that incorporate an understanding of war and militarism informed by gender, race and class.
