What: Kingian Nonviolence is a framework for transforming and reconciling conflict that was developed out of the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the organizing strategies of the Civil Rights Movement. This training will address strategies and principles on how to respond to both interpersonal conflict as well as larger social conflicts.
Recently in Oakland and throughout this country, there have been a lot of discussions about the merits of nonviolence. However, there are a lot of misunderstandings about what people mean by the term “nonviolence.” Nonviolence is much more than simply “not being violent.” It is an active, aggressive force for personal and social change.
During this workshop, we will study the nature of human conflict, the roots of violence, the principles of nonviolence, and the “six steps of Kingian Nonviolence,” which will discuss the role of direct action, education, negotiation, and other steps critical in movement building.
