Free Non-violence Workshop April 21-22 

April 18, 2017

Merge non-violence philosophy with non-violence practices in a two-day workshop, free and open to everyone, 5:30 to 9:30 pm, Friday, April 21 and 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Saturday April 22 at University Congregational Church.

I attended a valuable non-violence workshop with Dr. Bernard Lafayette Jr. in February. Several people requested a follow-up opportunity to merge nonviolence philosophy with nonviolence practices. I was excited to learn that Dr. Lafayette returns to do just that!

Nonviolence is not a passive approach to ducking and covering during difficult times. Rather, nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people, requiring practiced discipline. When lived out, nonviolence can send a powerful message of love and justice even when met with anger, prejudice and hate. It has changed the world before and can do so again.

Join 2016 recipient of the Gandhi International Humanitarian Award Bernard Lafayette Jr., as he teaches the power and techniques of Kingian nonviolence (as demonstrated by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.). Workshop focuses on how to apply principles of nonviolence in hands-on ways in public spaces such as legislative meetings and protests and in interpersonal interactions with friends, family and co-workers.

Please note: This is a single two-day event; if you can only attend part of it, please come! Register here
