Description

Queen’s ALPHA Education is a student-led chapter of the larger not-for-profit organization. ALPHA Education is an educational NGO and registered charity in Canada that promotes a critical-historical investigation of the events of World War II in Asia. Our mission is to foster awareness of an often overlooked aspect of World War II history, in the interest of furthering the values of justice, peace, and reconciliation, both for survivors of the past and for those who shape the historical narratives of the present and future. With this mission, we aim to activate historical memory and dialogue, to promote reconciliation, healing, closure and cross-cultural understanding. We achieve this mission through education and advocacy initiatives along four directions: engaging educators and students, empowering youth, supporting research, and connecting with the community.
