Hey Central Vermont Folks! Come join the Peace & Justice Center at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library on Saturday May 28th from Noon to 5pm for our FREE Nonviolent Activism 101 Workshop in Montpelier!
We’ll be exploring systems of oppression and examining how a nonviolent strategy is effective in taking on this type of violence. We’ll also work toward building skills and strategies to lift up movements and local efforts that contribute to a just and peaceful world.
This program is designed to help people in the community access and explore the strategy of nonviolence in the hopes that this information will be used in movements locally. The first part of the workshop focuses on exploring violence and systems of oppression in order to have a meaningful understanding of how a nonviolent strategy is effective in taking on violence. In the second half of the day, participants will work together to practice developing a coordinated nonviolent response to a particular oppressive policy, institution, structure, and/or practice within the community. We are looking forward to learning with all participants and building skills and strategy to lift up movements and local efforts that contribute to a just and peaceful world. RSVP over the phone at 863-2345 x6.
