The public is invited by the Nonviolence Legacy Project to a free community presentation “Organizing for Nonviolent Social Change” by civil rights pioneer Dr. Bernard LaFayette Jr.
on Friday, September 23, 7 to 9 p.m. at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, 210 E. Lester St.
From the flyer on this talk:
“Dr. Lafayette was one of the student leaders in the 1961 Nashville Lunch Counter Sit-ins, a co-founder of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), a Freedom Rider, and appointed by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as National Coordinator for the Poor People’s Campaign. He has dedicated his life to carrying out Dr. King’s final instructions on the morning of Dr. King’s assassination that the next movement must be “institutionalize and internationalize nonviolence.”
The Nonviolence Legacy Project (NVLP) began in 2009 with the intention of creating a youth-led, adult-supported nonviolence training team for Tucson and beyond. A diverse team of certified youth and adult trainers are now available to provide a range of nonviolence training programs and community presentations in both Tucson and Phoenix.
