Two-Day Nonviolence Core Training

The two-day core workshop in Kingian nonviolence is an intensive, experiential introduction to the principles and steps of nonviolence as derived from the writings and work of Martin Luther King, Jr.

The purpose of the workshop is to examine how these steps and principles of nonviolence were applied in the movements Dr. King led from 1954 to 1968 and to explore their application to current conditions of violence and conflict.

The 14-hour workshop takes place in two consecutive days. It is led by trainers who have been certified to teach nonviolence by the King Center in Atlanta, in a program supervised by Coretta Scott King.

The cost of the workshop is $30. This fee may be partially waived for those unable to pay the full amount. A limited number of Xavier students may attend for free, so call now. Lunches will be provided.

The maximum number of workshop participants is 28, so please register now before all slots are taken. Anyone can participate, regardless of age or ability. (Registrants: please tell us of special needs in advance.)
