Event description

Description

How do we address the socio-political challenges of our times and transform a hurting world? And what power do you have to affect that change? Neither passivity nor violence will work. Active nonviolence is the third way; the means of both social and personal transformation. This session will explore the success of nonviolent resistance to injustice and oppression and focus on the nonviolent life through the example of Mahatma Gandhi.

Duration: 3 hours

Trainers: The Gandhi Team

The Gandhi team is a group of committed individuals who care about a diverse set of issues of justice and peace. We are a blend of lifelong activists and new leaders with over 40 years of combined experience in social ministry, justice, outreach and nonviolence. What unites us is our passion to stand in solidarity for social change, and to teach others about active nonviolence, as a worldview, way of life, and a means of working toward that change. We collaborate with Campaign Nonviolence and Pace e Bene foundation and the Office of Justice and Peace in the Diocese of San Jose. To find out more or to get involved, contact: nonviolence.gandhi@gmail.com. We are Joanna Thurmann, Lorin Peters, Stan Taylor, George Stachnik, Monica Rising, and Francesca Paist.
