Welcome to Purple Wagon!

Child's DrawingChildren's understanding of peace and political violence develops gradually. We are using the vivid purple wagon imagery from one young child's early understanding to represent our attempt to bring you research-based information, recommendations, and activities to help children understand political violence, cope with fears and sadness when groups are in conflict, and learn how to make peace. Explore what we have in our purple wagon!
