Join us for an overview of Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation at 4pm ET / 3pm CT / 1pm PT on November 6, 2023. Kingian Nonviolence is an approach to conflict and community leadership that offers values and methods useful for anyone who wants to use conflict constructively in your personal life, in group settings, or in community issues and building a reconciled world. 

This 2 Hour webinar covers:

  • The 4 pillars of Kingian Nonviolence

  • Initial introduction to the 6 Principles and 6 Steps - the “Will” and the “Skill” of Kingian Nonviolence.

  • The Social Dynamics of Kingian Nonviolence 

This training will be co-facilitated by Sara Haldeman-Scarr and Ruth Henry.


Sara Haldeman-Scarr grew up in the Church of the Brethren as a pacifist. Her anabaptist faith came alive in The Will and The Skill of KNV. She is a trained as a level one and level two KNV instructor. Sara is currently volunteering with OEP assisting with the 1000 Brethren Project.  She retired from a 17 yr pastorate in San Diego in 2022 and now resides in PA.  

Ruth Henry is a Level III trainer in Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation and a socially engaged public artist who layers colors, texture and lyrics into intricate reflections on community, conflict, and possibility. Her murals, sculpture, installations and music invite creative participation and dialogue through a call and response process that is deeply grounded in nonviolence and conflict reconciliation, channeling collective anger at unjust conditions towards a shared envisioning of future solutions. As a nonviolence trainer, she has facilitated workshops across the U.S., Colombia and Bolivia, and has organized Trainers’ Institutes in both Watertown, MA (USA) and Cartagena, Colombia. Her Hip Hop album, Ripple, features one track for each of Dr. King’s six principles; compilation albums Undoing Racism Mixtape and I Speak/Yo Hablo Hip Hop bring additional artists together to explore and express their own connections to King’s principles; murals such as The Time Is Always Right and Rise to Change offer participants additional spaces to explore connections visually. Ruth has exhibited and performed locally at venues such as Boston Center for the Arts, Harvard University, Center for Latino Arts, Piano Factory and others. Internationally, she has exhibited and performed in venues such as the Palacio de Inquisición in Cartagena, Colombia, the Partners of the Americas Convention in Florianopolis, Brazil and the Srishti Institute of Art, Design & Technology in Bangalore, India. Her murals stretch from Boston to Florida to Colorado, across Mexico, Haiti, Colombia and India. She received her BA from Hampshire College, continued her studies through a Fulbright grant to Colombia, and received her MFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She currently works as a teaching Artist-in-Residence at the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute.
