Marian University to host Kingian nonviolence training

September 25, 2017

Marian University’s Social Justice Committee, in partnership with the Wisconsin Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies, will host Kingian Nonviolence introductory training on October 12 and 13, 9am – 3:30 (both days) in the Sodexo Dining Room within the Stayer Center for Technology and Executive Learning.

This two-day training will focus on the philosophy and practice of nonviolence taught by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This training is free and open to anyone (training limited to 50 participants) who wants to explore nonviolence as a philosophy and as an effective strategy for positive social change.

Participants will learn King’s six principles of nonviolence; how to apply nonviolence for conflict reconciliation; King’s six steps for nonviolent social change; and the role of direct action in nonviolent struggle.

Those interested in attending are asked to pre-register by emailing Tracy Qualmann at tqualmann@marianuniversity.edu. Attendees are expected to attend both days. A light breakfast and lunch are provided both days, as well as training documents. Questions regarding this training can also be directed to Tracy Qualmann.
