June 2018 participants in Kingian Nonviolence and Community Action -- Dayton, Ohio (Kezia Curtis and Matt Guynn, co-facilitators)

We’re excited to both scatter seeds and tend plants that continue growing!  

On Earth Peace offered Kingian Nonviolence workshops in Dayton, Ohio, in 2017 and 2018, sponsored by the Kingian Nonviolence Coordinating Committee and the Dayton International Peace Museum.  Our summer 2018 training group has decided to continue meeting for a “nonviolence jam session” to keep building relationships and applying material from the training to their ongoing community leadership. The session will be facilitated by Jan Futrell, who is the coordinator for the Peace Museum’s TIPS (Teens Inventing Peaceful Solutions) program, which uses On Earth Peace’s Agape-Satyagraha curriculum.

The January-May 2018 cohort of “Beyond the Dream: The Radical Love of Martin Luther King, Jr.,” decided five months wasn’t enough. They plan to keep meeting several times a year, to keep deepening their connection and reading new material together. Their first post-program reading was Open Wide the Freedom Gates, the autobiography of Dorothy Height, who served for 40 years as the president of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW).
