Pace e Bene Trainer Leads Nonviolent Movement in Trinidad

Posted by Erin Bechtol

Pace e Bene nonviolence trainer Kit Evans-Ford has been spreading her message of empowerment through peace and nonviolence internationally. This week, Evans-Ford has been heading the Nonviolence Begins With Me movement in Trinidad, where she has been leading nonviolence trainings and speaking publicly about the violence that almost ended her life when she was attacked by a serial rapist. She noted that many criminals have themselves been victimized by someone, and a more effective way to end suffering is through nonviolence.

Evans-Ford joined the Living Waters Community to speak from her own experience about the transformative power of nonviolence in her personal life. Through her speech and workshops she sought to help others, in Trinidad and elsewhere, find the value in pursuing alternatives to violence. She shares how she overcame post traumatic stress disorder and began dedicating her life to living compassionately. Evans-Ford stressed that the benefits ranged from personal to global: “Even when bad things happen in our lives, in our country or the world, even after that, hope, peace, love, and healing is possible.”
