Nick Mele, a local nonviolent activist who helped create the Nonviolent Peaceforce and developed training material for Pax Christi USA, will offer a one-hour workshop on Nonviolence as a path to social change.
Nick received training from one of the co-creators of the Pace e Bene Center's nonviolence training curriculum, From Violence to Wholeness. He has facilitated nonviolence training use this program and other material for groups across the United States and has participated in nonviolent actions at home and abroad, most recently in protests against U.S. military bases on Okinawa. He also speaks and writes about nonviolence, foreign affairs and immigration justice.
We will explore successful nonviolent campaigns that changed society in this and other countries, and identify the factors that lead to successful nonviolent social change, as well as the risks that such efforts encounter.
