Beloved Community: Nonviolent Direct Action Community Organizing

This workshop will focus on nonviolent direct action organizing, including the importance of relationship and community building as central to movement building. We are faced with extreme abuse of police power, growing income inequality, declining quality of public education, and wealth and political power. This workshop will explore nonviolent direct action organizing that affirms the dignity, worth, and enormous unrealized potential of all, with an emphasis on those who are impoverished and most marginalized. These interactive sessions will draw on the experience of 50 years of movement building that involves neighborhoods, organized labor, churches and other faith-based institutions, truth and reconciliation initiatives, and work with gang members.
