This workshop will be led by Bill Carpenter, Director of National Actions, and Chris Hubble, an LGBT activist with Soulforce-Colorado. Participants in this workshop will join a dynamic conversation that will introduce them to an understanding of the incredible power and potential that lies in the principles of nonviolent resistance and the history of nonviolent movements. Participants will also be empowered to apply this knowledge in their communities in the struggle for social and economic justice for all people.
An introduction to the Tool Kit contained in the new website www.nonviolence4equality.org will further enable participants to return to their respective communities and immediately begin grassroots organizing for nonviolent social transformation. Participants in this workshop will engage with the subject matter utilizing a variety of experiential learning methods.
