Interactive training for activists. Led by Dion Lerman, a longtime Philadelphia activist. Peace is not the absence of conflict, but resolving the sources of the conflicts. Violence, and the threat of violence, including war, is the tool that is maintains all oppression and injustice. We must act against violence, personal or institutional, and reclaim and assert our individual power to create a society in which we want to live.
We will discuss the history of movements .Gain perspective and prepare for the work ahead with an understanding of how we ended up "here". We are investing time with each other to get a handle on how to do that. Be a positive influence. Help others consider being active. We need everyone...to create an effective mass movement- a true People's Lobby. That includes reaching out and participating in "Courageous Conversations'. Donations to cover expenses welcome
