Promoting Peace in Cedar Rapids

Posted by Erin Bechtol
02.13.18

Pace e Bene’s Kit Evans-Ford was in Cedar Rapids, IA on February 1, 2018, for a nonviolent training workshop. Kit was hosted by Sisters of Mercy, Third Avenue Churches & Friends, and area colleges to show participants how to live the nonviolent way. Participants learned how to respond to violence, how to see situations from various angles, and how to choose a life without violence.

Maggie Schaaf, one attendee at the workshop took away an important lesson: “There is a different way to live. You can choose to live a life that does not include violence; does not include an eye for an eye.”

The workshop was well received by the community, getting coverage in the local news. Watch the video below to see more.
