Please join us for the last in our nonviolence series co-sponsored by the Peace & Justice Center, the Vermont Humanities Council, and the library. Participants in this workshop will learn about nonviolence as practiced by Martin Luther King, Jr. Build your knowledge of successful nonviolent campaigns, explore how your own identity impacts this activism, and engage in role play. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover how to unlock ways to work toward social justice and peace without perpetuating cycles of violence.
Presented by Kyle Silliman-Smith. This workshop is part of the library’s programming for Vermont Reads 2019. This year’s Vermont Reads book is March: Book One by civil rights icon John Lewis in collaboration with co-writer Andrew Ayden and graphic artist Nate Powell.
