Twin Cities Nonviolent holds 10 Days Free From Violence

Posted by Erin Bechtol

Twin Cities Nonviolent is coordinating 10 Days Free From Violence in Minneapolis and St. Paul from September 21-30, 2018 to participate in coordination with the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions. In the video below, Michael Quinn discusses some of the activities coming next month and the goals of their nonviolent actions.

Twin Cities Nonviolent believes that peace is possible—that waging peace needs even more resources than waging war because our survival depends on it. 10 Days Free from Violence was called to action by Fr. Harry Bury, a priest who worked alongside Mother Teresa in Calcutta and was awarded the key to Hi Chi Minh City for his efforts to end the Vietnam War. Over ten days, there will be over 60 events from over 40 organizations to teach us how to wage peace, reduce violence and create a culture of nonviolence in the Twin Cities. These include a Gathering of Nations to rededicate Bde Maka Ska, a Black Storytelling Festival, a music festival and concerts, writers forums, dancing, photography and art, prayer services, theater performances, peace literacy workshops, and a poetry slam in North Minneapolis.

For more information, visit the Twin Cities Nonviolent page here and keep an eye on our listing of their events to stay posted.
