Kingian Nonviolence is an approach to community building that utilizes values and methods from the US Civil Rights movement that are applicable for today’s issues. In Trumansburg we hope to develop a framework for addressing issues of social justice, equity, and inclusion. This workshop will be facilitated by Marie Benner-Rhoades. For teens and adults, no experience is needed.
Participants may attend either session. Registration is encouraged at https://www.onearthpeace.org/trumansburg_ny_introduction_to_kingian_nonviolence
