Intro to Kingian Nonviolence Training


  • Portland State University School of Social Work 1800 Southwest 6th Avenue Portland, OR, 97201 United States (map)

Kingian Nonviolence, the philosophy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., has found a home in prisons, jails, schools, and social movements in countries around the world, including the Poor People's Campaign! It has helped movements achieve social change and communities transform cultures of violence. Kingian Nonviolence provides values and methods for waging conflict and organizing for justice.

Saturday-Sunday, October 20-21, 9am-5pm both days
Portland State University School of Social Work

This interactive, transformational workshop will cover topics such as the myths and realities of nonviolence, the dynamics of human conflict, definitions of violence, and methods of nonviolent social change. Kingian Nonviolence offers both the will (a set of values) and the skill (an approach to conflict and organizing) to wage conflict and organize for justice. 

This training is hosted by friends of the PPC, On Earth Peace and East Point Peace Academy, and is offered through a Gift Economics model, which means there is no fee charged. More info and registration here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1724683710954173/
