City leaders will gather with scholars and students at the UTSA Downtown Campus on Thursday, Jan. 26 to discuss the highly successful peace education program founded by Prem Rawat and in place at San Antonio's Dominguez State Jail.

Free and open to the public, the forum, "Peace on the Inside," will be 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 26 in the Buena Vista Theater on the UTSA Downtown Campus, 501 César E. Chávez Blvd., San Antonio, Texas, 78207. Francine Romero, associate dean of the UTSA College of Public Policy, will provide opening remark. Guest speakers include Rawat and UTSA scholars.

The Prem Rawat Foundation's Inner Peace program has only one agenda -- to help incarcerated people find an inner personal peace that allows them to understand themselves, drop their defensive tough-guy masks and reach a point where they are okay with the genuine person inside who has feelings, emotions and fears," said Michael Gilbert, UTSA associate professor of criminal justiceirst day of classes.
