Peace to the world requires more action now! Racism is a real problem that has impacted, and continues to impact, real victims around the world. It needs real people who will take real actions to get real results. We all need peace. Peace is dynamic not static, which means that we may move with peace wherever we go while peace also remains where we were. Therefore, we need to be reminded about peace every day by honouring diversity. This course has been created after scrupulous observation of wars and other conflicts and troubles in the world, in which discrimination (including racial discrimination) is found to be a backbone. If prevention is better than cure, then the best treatment of a disease is to successfully manage the cause, not the symptoms. During this course, you'll learn to understand, by interacting, that racial discrimination is real. All peoples have been victims of and committed racism. All races and colours matter, and nothing is more beautiful than diversity. At the end, participants will be able, as they may want to, to become activists for peace. Your instructor, Dieudonné Mugeni, has lived in Powell River since 2019. He is a registered Medical Doctor in Congo (DRC) and is in the process of getting his medical credentials recognized by the Medical Council of Canada. Passionate about education, Dieudonné has 3 years of teaching experience at the High School of Medical Techniques (equivalent to post-secondary nursing schools) in Congo, and at the Franco-Namibian Cultural Center in Windhoek as a French tutor. Currently, he is tutoring at the French Club of Powell River (Club Bon Accueil), and since 2019 he has been an Education Assistant and an uncertified Teacher on Call (French language support) for School District 47. Dieudonné, who was born and raised in a conflict zone where war was endemic, is also an author and an activist for peace. As a guest speaker at the Powell River Recreation Complex Arena, he offered gentle insights into the discussion of a possible name change for Powell River.
