Close the SOA & Challenge Unjust Foreign Policy: Engage Nonviolence Workshops PDF Print E-mail
Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service is partnering with School of the Americas Watch to offer workshops to colleges, universities, and high schools across the United States. These workshops will explore nonviolence and nonviolent action in the context of the issue of the SOA and students? role in the movement to close it.

The Engage Workshop:
The Engage workshop engages participants in a dynamic, experiential, interactive process, introducing students to the vision, spirituality and tools of transformative nonviolence.

Engage also:
- opens up space for you to explore your experiences of violence and creative ways that you can transform these situations.
- invites you to delve deeply into nonviolence as a spiritual
discipline, a way of life, and a powerful force that can help to create a more just and peaceful society.
- offers tools that you can use in your everyday lives, on your
campuses, and in movements for nonviolent social change,
especially in the movement to close the SOA and challenge
unjust foreign policy.

Some Schools/Groups we?ve recently worked with include:
? C.O.O.L. Idealist National Conference 2006, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN
? School of Americas Watch 2005
? Jesuit University Students Together in Concerned Empowerment,
