About Eric Dawson

In many of America’s schools, violence poses a significant threat to children’s safety and performance in class. Eric Dawson is counteracting this with a program that engages youth in peacemaking and conflict resolution. Peace First brings together students, their families, teachers, and volunteers to collectively change the status quo, reject violence and build peaceful relationships.
