Peace Ambassadors help to keep marches and demonstrations peaceful and safe. They're usually the friendly, diplomatic type who can respond calmly in tense situations. This session teaches the CLARA technique for nonviolent engagement, de-escalation skills, and other practical tools, and includes role-play (in live events only). You must be at least 18 years old to serve as a Peace Ambassador. Upon completion, those who wish to serve will receive further materials, instructions, and opportunities to sign-up to serve at various events.
How do we address the socio-political challenges of our times and transform a hurting world? What power do you have to affect that change? Neither passivity nor violence will work. Active nonviolence is the third way; the means of both social and personal transformation. This session explores the success of nonviolent resistance to injustice and oppression and focuses on the nonviolent life through the example of Mahatma Gandhi.
