Celebrating the International Day of Peace
An Evening with Dr. Bernard Lafayette
Thursday, September 20th
6:30 – 8:30 PM
390 27th St., Oakland CA
Recently, there have been growing interest in the Bay Area around Kingian Nonviolence. Since January of this year, we have held 13 two-day workshops for well over 350 people in the Bay Area alone!
This includes five workshops inside the San Bruno County Jail and workshops for Oakland youth. We have partnered with many important Bay Area communities, including the East Bay Meditation Center, the Oakland Peace Center, BAY-Peace, Youth Spirit Artworks, Youth Alive, various Occupy communities and more.
We are honored to continue to work to fulfill our mission, and help Dr. Bernard Lafayette help fulfill his promise to Coretta Scott King: to continue to spread Dr. King’s philosophy with the highest integrity.
We are also excited to announce that Dr. Lafayette will finally be coming to the Bay Area!!! Please join us on the eve of the International Day of Peace for this exciting event.
UPDATE: Program will also feature performances from local youth who have attended a Kingian Nonviolence workshop, and a video presentation of PPWN’s national work with youth.
Co-Sponsors of this event include: YES!, Youth Spirit Artworks, BAY-Peace, PeaceWorkers US, the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples, and EndBigBanks.org. If your organization is interested in becoming a co-sponsor ($50 fee), please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Lafayette will also be leading a two-day introductory workshop in Kingian Nonviolence that weekend, the 22nd and 23rd. CLICK HERE for more information and to register.
Please help us spread the word about these two events!!! Hope to see you all there!!!
