The Environmental & Peace Education Center is a grassroots, 501(c)3 non-profit, activist organization dedicated to the creation of sustainable environments that are safe for life on earth through the application of non-violent conflict resolution and egalitarian democracy. As of April 27th 2013, EPEC has passed the torch to a new generation of board members who possess the skills and determination to lead and create more leaders in promoting a peaceful revolution of equality and sustainability.
Our current mission is to build an expansive team of activists and volunteers to accomplish the task of a land purchase to be used as an education center for sustainable practices and communal living. We wish to educate the public with a hands-on experience in environmental consciousness and technical processes to create abundant food production. We also advocate non-violent direct action, as we actively resist hierarchical oppression of all forms whether it be race, class, gender, or sexuality. Instead of simply discussing sociopolitical and environmental issues, we practice them and hope to inspire others to do the same.
EPEC asserts that a shift to the non-profit sector is needed, as technological innovation is slowly alleviating monotonous jobs causing harsher constraint on the workforce. Thus, we wish to provide a working environment based on autonomy, mastery, and purpose, using technology to create abundance and free energy to promote cooperative groups that can mutually aid each other in the future and live without scarcity.
