Love Makes a Way Training: Melbourne
October 31, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm EST
Want to know more about Christian nonviolent direct action (NVDA) in the tradition of Martin Luther King Jr.? Want to find out how you can be part of the #LoveMakesAWay movement?
Love Makes A Way is offering this introductory training for this ongoing movement of Christians. This workshop will INTRODUCE you to Christian Nonviolence in the tradition of Jesus, Tutu and King. It will TRAIN you in Nonviolent Direct Action and EQUIP you to take part in a LMAW action.
This workshop will cover why people take nonviolent action, its power as an effective means of social change and as a way of life, explore our fears about taking action, explain what happens if you get arrested for civil disobedience (which is a subset of NVDA), showcase stories of ordinary faithful people acting powerfully against injustices, and give you a few chances to role play taking action yourselves.
Come on your own and join up with others interested in being involved in a LMAW action OR bring your friends, a group or team interested in doing an action together.
Cost: $40 Waged, $20 Unwaged
