Kingian Nonviolent Conflict Reconciliation Workshop
July 6 @ 9:00 am - July 7 @ 5:00 pm
This transformational two-day workshop explores Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s philosophy of nonviolent conflict reconciliation and the strategies of the Civil Rights Movement. Participants will see how the lessons of the past can be applied in the present.
This workshop has helped thousands of people in various social justice movements as well as in prisons, law enforcement, schools and other communities understand the depth of the philosophy of nonviolence and conflict reconciliation.
If you are an organizer working for social change, an activist working to reduce violence in your community, a youth worker/organizer, or just someone who wants to learn how to resolve their personal conflicts better, this workshop is for you!
It is not preparation for a particular action, but rather a training to understand the nonviolent change process that can be applied to activist campaigns, inside activist groups, and in day to day life. It is a training about the philosophy and strategy of nonviolence, and while it is highly participatory, it does not have a physical component.
In a society which often perpetrates fear, intolerance, isolation, and violence, resist by learning the practice of love, nonviolent resistance, and beloved community.
