Peace & Justice Center’s Nonviolent Activism 101 invites community members to explore strategies of nonviolence aimed at breaking down systems of oppression.
In the morning, we take a look at violence and systems of oppression. We start to develop an understanding of how nonviolent strategies are effective in taking on violence. There will be a one hour break for lunch, participants are asked to bring their own lunch so we can eat together as a group. The afternoon focuses on group practice. Together, we identify oppressive policies, institutions, structures, or practices within the community. We then practice developing coordinated nonviolent responses to these forms of oppression.
In Nonviolent Activism 101, we build skills and strategies to lift up local movements and efforts that contribute to a just and peaceful world. We look forward to learning, working, and playing with you! This program is supported by Manchester Community Library and held in collaboration with Campaign Nonviolence’s Week of Actions as well as their “1000 Nonviolence Trainings” Project for 2016.
