Deborah Kelly, Wisdom House Executive Director, commented, "We created this conference to offer people a safe environment to have an opening, and productive, dialogue regarding the growing unrest across our nation. The time for civil, calm, reassuring conversation is very much upon us."
Using a comprehensive curriculum developed by Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr., the former strategist for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., CTCN, a leader in nonviolence education, has introduced thousands of citizens and civic leaders to the practice of Kingian Nonviolence.
The January 23rd program will address the significant role that nonviolence plays in today's climate. The Zoom conference will feature three trainers from the Connecticut Center for Nonviolence, Victoria Christgau, CTCN Founder, and Executive Director, Sonya Green, CTCN Board Chair and Trustee, plus Pastor James Lane, Senior Trainer.
