Unitarian Universalist Church Nonviolent Action Training
Throughout history non-violent direct action has played a recurring and vital role in shining a light on injustice and bringing about social change. On Saturday, March 10, members of the Social Action Committee of UUCUC will host a day-long training in the principles, philosophy and practice of non-violent direct action. We invite you to join us!

Led by Jerica Arents, noted activist and educator in peace, justice and conflict studies, this interactive training will provide basic knowledge and skills to better understand, support, and/or actively engage in non-violent direct action as part of social change.

Meet the Trainer: Jerica Arents is a professor in the Peace, Justice, Conflict Studies Program at DePaul University.  Her ongoing interests focus on social movements and activism with interests in peacemaking in Afghanistan and the effects of the NATO-led occupation on ordinary Afghans. She collaborates with the Afghan Peace Volunteers in Kabul, where they have created the first multi-ethnic community of youth committed to nonviolent action. She also serves as an organizer with Witness Against Torture, a campaign to close the prison at Guantánamo and end U.S.-sponsored torture worldwide.
