CNV Houston, TX Holds Interfaith Demonstration in the Park

Posted by Ryan Hall

DignityHouston and CNV joined in an effort for “Intersectional Justice” for an event called Peace Day at the Menil. DignityHouston which is a Catholic Organization for LGBTQ Persons who identify as a Person of Faith and as a Person of the LGBTQ Community, united with Campaign Nonviolence to spread the word that violence affects all people, including people of the LGBTQ Community.

Their event was an Interfaith Demonstration in a park through meditation, prayer, and positive public dialogue. The demonstration was on Sept. 21, 2014 at the Menil Park in Houston TX, Montrose Area.

Their participants were primarily people who have never done a nonviolent demonstration, but left with an expanded consciousness and a fire for nonviolent change.

They had a great event and found many new activists in the making. They are continuing to Mainstream Nonviolence with a follow up event on October 11th at the Montrose Center from 5:30pm-8pm where wthey will be screening Fr. John Dear’s Movie “THE NARROW PATH” and will have a Q&A portion afterwards with a Panel of Activists from the local area.

DignityHouston and several other activists, as well as CNV organizer Jerry Monroe Maynard, were very happy with the turn out of the week of actions, and will continue the efforts to establish a Culture of Peace.

Also, anyone from Pace e Bene, and CNV, are invited to come to Houston if you have the capability, and attend their movie screening/panel discussion on the 11th!

CNV Houston and Dignity Houston recently got interviewed on KPFT Radio. You can listen to it here below on Youtube!
