FIA & Adult RE - Non-Violent Resistance Workshop with CLUE and Rev. Greg

UUSM members are invited to enroll in a workshop presented by CLUE-LA (Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice) to develop a shared practice of non-violent resistance. Pre-registration is required; please sign up at the Faith In Action table or the RE table after services or email fia2@uusm.org.

Non-violence is a philosophy, a spiritual practice, and a strategy. Beginning with framing in the Unitarian Universalist faith by Rev. Greg, the training will focus on the six principles of nonviolent direct action, and the six steps of a nonviolent campaign. Components include values exercises, historical examples, and responding to violence. The workshop was developed by clergy and lay members of CLUE’s Santa Monica committee, building on the work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King. We ask you to make a commitment to attend the full workshop, which will strengthen our congregation’s solidarity and power as a force for justice.
