On February 21, KGNU, a community radio station and NPR affiliate that broadcasts throughout Denver and Boulder, Colorado, covered the Peace Education Program (PEP) and the Inside Peace documentary on its news program, Morning Magazine. PEP is currently being offered at several facilities in Colorado.

An excerpt of the KGNU coverage:

A Texas prison is an unlikely setting about the transformative power of peace, but a new documentary, Inside Peace focuses on a peace education program at the Dominguez State prison in San Antonio Texas. … One of the prisoners featured in the documentary is David Sigee, who now as a former inmate says the class had a profound effect on him. “It was almost like fighting fire with water instead of fighting fire with fire. They showed us love not anger. So that right there broke the ice and got me and the rest of the guys who started going to the class…it got our attention.”
