SORT BY Relevancy
The philosophy of non-violence is not one of fear but of fearlessness in the face of violence. Much of the violence in the urban community is self inflicted by yesterday's neglected, rejected and abused children who have now come of age and are terrorizing the neighborhoods with senseless violence. The adults who draw youth into organized crime capitalize on broken homes, absent fathers and overwhelmed mothers and grandmothers. The evil of guns and drugs is just as deadly as police with fire hoses and attack dogs in keeping communities in a state of terror. Can Dr. King's strategy of non-violent direct confrontation work in ridding neighborhoods of street violence? How? Community Activist, Coach and Candidate for 20th Ward Alderman Ernest Radcliff explains how his nonviolent work with youth has been successful.
The Power of Non-Violence is our topic for this week as we engage in 64 days of A Season for Nonviolence.
The Gandhi King Season for Nonviolence (SNV) commenced for the 18th consecutive year on January 30, 2015 in cities across the globe. The annual 64 day campaign, co-founded in 1998 by Dr. Arun Gandhi and The Association for Global New Thought (AGNT), is an educational, media and grassroots awareness campaign spanning the January 30th and April 4th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The purpose of the campaign is to focus educational and media attention on the philosophy of attaining peace through nonviolent action as demonstrated by legendary leaders Mohandas K. Gandhi, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Cesar E. Chavez, and President Nelson Mandela, as well as living legends such as His Holiness, Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. ~ http://www.agnt.org/node/10
