The Freedom Foundation, Freedom School of Conflict Reconciliation, and Students UNITE will be hosting a Summer Nonviolence Training Institute, July 13 – 18, 2015.
Between Selma’s 50th Anniversary of the March to Montgomery, the injustice in Ferguson, and the recent uprising in Baltimore, there is a yearning in our country for change and revolution. We believe that the best way to change is through nonviolence and love.
Participants will learn the principles and strategies of nonviolence that were used during the Civil Rights and other historic nonviolent movements. This will raise the level of consciousness of every participant, including ways in which we partake in a system of oppression and also ways in which all of us were born to defy it.
This intensive five-day course will not only train participants in conflict reconciliation, but also focus on helping individuals break free individually from internal conflict. This will allow all participants to walk nonviolently and to organize a social movement in their own communities.
From social change to internal peace, our five day core training in nonviolence and conflict reconciliation is built to awaken, educate, and train each participant to apply nonviolent tools in every conflict they encounter.
Each day, participants will engage in a 6-8 hour training day with lunch and dinner provided by our very own Freedom Café. The cost of the Summer Institute is $350, which includes all training fees and materials, in addition to lunch and dinner. Travel and lodging are not included in registration costs.

We look forward to joining together in this struggle to bring love and peace to each of our communities, and we are ready to do so through nonviolence.
