The Jorgensen School for Nonviolence
What happens when we come together to create nonviolent social change?
The Jorgensen School for Nonviolence is being visioned as an on-line program, with an on-site retreat at the launch and completion, that would take place over the course of 8-9 months (August-May). We envision youth - with their fire and purpose and determination - joining with seasoned activists, who can share their experiences and wisdom.
We will begin at the heart of nonviolence - literally. Inner nonviolence and interpersonal nonviolence forms the basis for extending out to create a more just, sustainable and peaceful world. We will ground our work in Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and then building out we will look at how to create effective lasting change in larger groups. Every participant will bring an issue to build strategies for - racial justice, gender justice, political reform, economic justice, etc - if you can dream it, you can build a coalition and actions to bring about the world you have been dreaming of!
