Nonviolent Direct Action Training

September 18, 2018

As part of Campaign Nonviolence, the Buchanan Initiative for Peace and Nonviolence is sponsoring a training in partnership with the Open Table to prepare citizens for participation in nonviolent social justice campaigns. As we approach elections in November, many direct actions are being planned in our community and around the country. This training is intended to prepare citizens for participation in these direct actions and provide the tools necessary to maintain a peaceful and nonviolent atmosphere while participating in these actions. This training is FREE and open to the public! Questions? E-mail
