I am privileged to be a member of the Summit Council of the INTERnational Week for Nonviolence, which will be held 16th-23rd August 2014.
If you are organising an event during that week, please post the details in the comments section below.
I have also posted some NVC events - not just events for that week – here.
One of my guests on my recent show about Black parents and nonviolence was saying, "You CAN'T teach young people nonviolence because they have to fight".
I was reminded of the first time I met Marshall Rosenberg, author of Nonviolent Communication. I asked him about his work with Black gang leaders.
I talk about this in the audio below.
I am also inspired by the example of Malcolm X. He was alienated and disaffected, and he became involved in petty crime and ended up in prison. But the right support and encouragement, and given the right inspiration, he became a leader.
Listen below for more.
I am really passionate about this work. NVC is saving people's lives all over the world, and it could save your life. It could save your child's life.
The INTERnational Week for Nonviolence is not exclusively for people of African heritage. It's for everyone.
