Join us for an overview of Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation at 10am ET / 9am CT / 7am PT on April 6, 2024. 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 Matt Guynn and Sherrilynn Bevel.


Matt Guynn is On Earth Peace's co-executive director and director of organizing for church and community groups. He is a member of the online training team for Training for Change, a social justice training center based in Philadelphia. For five years, he served on the Coordinating Committee for the Oregon Poor People’s Campaign. He is the co-editor of Resist, Organize, Transform: An Introduction to Nonviolence and Activism (2020). Matt is an active gardener who lives with his family in Portland, Oregon.  

Sherrilynn Bevel, PhD, is a Level III Kingian Nonviolence Trainer. She co-founded and is Associate Director of the Addie Wyatt Center for Nonviolence Training. From 2018 through 2020, she was Director of Training and Special Projects for the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence in Providence. Sherri chairs the board of directors of The Diversity Think Tank, which seeks equity in academic hiring at state-supported institutions of higher education. In the classroom, she teaches political science, human rights, Nonviolence, and African American studies. In The Chicago Freedom Movement: Martin Luther King Jr. and Civil Rights Activism in the North (U. of KY Press, 2016), she documented the contributions of a youth-led campaign to end lead poisoning, which ultimately resulted in federal lead protection legislation; and argued that this aspect of the Chicago Freedom Movement was an important precursor to the modern environmental justice movement.
