"Peace Literacy has the capacity to repair our broken parts and create a nonviolent world anchored in dignity, meaning, purpose, and compassion for all. Given the crucial role that Peace Literacy can play, I support the recognition of education in Peace Literacy as a universal human right." 2018 Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Nobel Laureate Peace Prize Winner
Since 2009 Chappell has offered workshops for educators, activists, community leaders, veterans, and faith-based organizations and has taught courses on Peace Literacy and Leadership in colleges across the US and Canada. In 2017, Chappell began work with a team of educational experts, coordinated by Sharyn Clough, Director of Phronesis Lab and Professor of Philosophy at Oregon State University, to design and teach Peace Literacy curriculum and assessment for use in public school through adult and higher education.
After leaving the military as a Captain in 2009, Chappell furthered his studies of non-violence, attending civil rights leader James Lawson's Non-Violence Program in 2010. He also attended the Level 1 and 2 International Nonviolence Summer Institute in 2013, where he trained with civil rights leaders Bernard Lafayette and C.T. Vivian at the University of Rhode Island.
Since 2009 Paul K. Chappell has worked full time for peace at the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, first as the Peace Leadership Director giving lectures, keynotes, and workshops and since 2016 as the Peace Literacy Director, continuing to lecture and give workshops, and responsible for Peace Literacy Curriculum Design and Development, Teacher Training, Coordination of Peace Literacy Curricular Development Team and National Peace Literacy Team. Chappell has also co-taught LEAD 581 Special Topics in Leadership Studies/Peace Leadership, at the University of San Diego School of Leadership and Education Science with Dr. Steven Gelb, and PAX 415 Special Topics in Peace Studies/Peace Literacy, at Oregon State University Honors College with Dr. Sharyn Clough.
While Chappell was stationed in Fort Bliss, El Paso he continued his education, graduating from Officer Basic Course (2003) and Captain's Career Course (2007). His military assignments included a post as C-RAM Liaison Officer Forward for Multi-National Corps Iraq (2006-2007) where he was responsible for the installation and system effectiveness of Counter Rocket, Artillery, and Mortar (C-RAM ) Sense, Warn, and Intercept capabilities at Forward Operating Bases in Iraq. He also served as Air Defense Liaison to DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) in 2006. Earlier he was appointed Deputy Chief of Doctrine, Training, and Requirements for Air Defense (2005-2006). In 2008-2009, he served as a PATRIOT Battery Commander, responsible for the training, welfare, and safety of over 90 soldiers and their families; and for the maintenance and operational readiness of PATRIOT missile equipment.
He wrote the first draft of the book that became Peaceful Revolution in 2001 and graduated from West Point in June 2002 with a major in International Relations and a minor in Systems Engineering.
Despite his violent upbringing and turbulent educational record through high school, Chappell excelled as a student, and after graduation was accepted to West Point in 1998. As Chappell writes in Will War Ever End, he was obsessed throughout his childhood and teen-age years with the problem of war that had been brought home to him with such violence, but ironically it was in his studies of military history at West Point that Chappell discovered abundant evidence  that humans do not have natural impulses to violence against other humans; that in the absence of traumatic catalysts of some kind, violence must be learned, as explored by Lt. Colonel Dave Grossman in On Killing. During his time at West Point, Chappell began to develop the major ideas that are the foundation of Peace Literacy, e.g., that our capacity for conscience and empathy, like language, develop naturally in humans, though these capacities need to be developed
Chappell was born in 1980 in Maryland, and was raised in Alabama, an only child in a multi-racial family. His mother is Korean, and moved to the US when she was in her thirties; his father (d. 2004) was half-black and half-white, and was raised in the segregated South. His father enlisted in the US military and fought in both the Korean and Vietnam wars retiring as a Command Sergeant Major, the highest enlisted rank. When Chappell was 4 years old, his father suffered a major mental break from which he would never recover. Chappell became the victim of his father's war trauma, suffering from violent abuse throughout his school.
