Description of Training: This interactive and inspirational training presents introductory information about nonviolence as a courageous way of life and a powerful strategy for social change. Special emphasis is given to the six principles and six steps of nonviolence according to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and their use during various civil rights campaigns.
Training Team: All trainers have been certified by civil rights pioneer Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr., who worked closely with Dr. King for eleven years. Each two-day session is co-facilitated by two to four trainers with diverse backgrounds.
Background: Dr. LaFayette was a National Program Administrator for Dr. King, helped start the Student Nonviolence Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and directed the Poor People’s Campaign.
