KINGIAN 6 PRACTICES
WHAT IS KINGIAN NONVIOLENCE?
Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation is an approach to conflict and community leadership that offers values and methods useful for anyone who wants to use conflict constructively in their personal life, in group settings, or in community issues and building a reconciled world.
Kingian Nonviolence workshops are transformational experiences that have helped thousands of people around the world understand the depth of the philosophy of nonviolence and learn to begin to bring the practices into their lives and their work. Whether you are an organizer working for social change, a teacher trying to change the culture of your school, or simply an individual trying to deal with the conflicts in your personal life, each person will walk away from our workshops with new skills and a new perspective.
Kingian Nonviolence is rooted in the philosophy and leadership of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the leadership of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement. The curriculum was codified by Rev. Dr. Bernard LaFayette, Jr., and David Jehnsen, both of whom served on Dr. King’s staff in the 1960s, and who sought to make lessons and tools from the Kingian legacy and the Civil Rights Movement period available for
people to address today’s conflicts, concerns, and conditions.
This two-hour event via Zoom will provide an initial introduction to the Kingian Nonviolence approach.
Facilitators: Matt Guynn, director of organizing, On Earth Peace; Pam Smith, executive director, Addie Wyatt Center for Nonviolence Training
