PSALM students celebrated the International Day of Peace by sponsoring a school-wide awareness event. Recognizing that disarmament is important in the process of peace-building, students met to discuss ways to raise awareness about landmines and cluster munitions, survivors issues and how to bring the United States aboard the treaties. Students sent press releases to publicize the events.
Students also initiated a membership drive which has resulted in 24 new members. Students are preparing for West Virginia University Health Science Center’s “Global Health Week” centered on global health issues. Students will be making presentations at the university in hopes of garnering supporters for their new initiative, “Be The Change” which asks visitors to make contact with national political leadership for support of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines and Cluster Munition Coalition’s endeavors.
