Instructor: Dr. Betty Reardon, Founding Director of the Peace Education Center at Teachers College, NY
Date & Time: Saturday November 20th, 2004,  11:00am-6:00pm

The ever increasing levels of violence throughout the world at all levels of social organization from family through global, call upon concerned educators and activists to consider with more intensity, the possibilities for change inherent in nonviolence. This workshop will present a basic introduction to the philosophy and theory of nonviolence illustrated by practical examples of nonviolent action for change suitable for adaptation to formal education and citizens' struggles for justice and peace.

This is the second of a two part special course/workshop. The particular focus and cases addressed will differ from those covered in Part 1. While it relates conceptually to the first session, Part 2 is an independent learning experience, so that participants who did not attend Part 1 will be able to join this workshop.
