Dear Friends in Peace and Nonviolence!
Please accept our invitation to participate in our annual International Nonviolence Summer Institute, at the University of Rhode Island's Center for Nonviolence & Peace Studies!
This year we are offering three training options: a 5-day Introduction to Kingian Nonviolence course, a 10- day Training of Trainers Level I certification course in Kingian Nonviolence, and a 5-day Advanced Level II certification course for previously certified trainers. Recent participates have represented countries such as Somalia, Liberia, Cameroon, South Africa, Columbia, Ukraine, Tanzania, Tibet, Palestine, and Nigeria.
The Institute also attracts participants from all over the US, joining together individuals from diverse cultural and political perspectives to find common ground in the principles and practices of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as an effective method for ending violence, achieving social justice, and creating the beloved community.
The attached flyer offers more detail for anyone who might be interested in any of these intensive trainings.
Please post or circulate to interested colleagues.
