The Truth School is thrilled to have Dr. David Ragland joining the trainer team of Cate Woolner and Mary Link for our full-day Nonviolent Direct Action (NVDA) training. Dr. Ragland is Co-Founder and Co-director for the Truth Telling project of Ferguson, is a Visiting Professor at Pacifica Graduate Institute and is the Sr. Bayard Rustin Fellow with the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Local NVDA trainer Cate Woolner says of Dr. Ragland, “What he brings is a fresh perspective on the questions of what is violence and non-violence in the face of police brutality and growing instances of violent counter-protests. He is also helping to refresh the materials and role plays we use. It is a huge deal that Dr. Ragland will bring his experience and presence to this NVDA training.”
The mission of the Fellowship of Reconciliation is: “Create a network of peacemakers. Organize and train local activists and justice leaders. Provide a national support framework for groups and communities to mobilize and drive moral movements. Welcome all people of conscience. Improve the lives of the disadvantaged. End structures of oppression, violence and war. Create peace through the transformative power of nonviolence.”
Be a part of this peace network, be a local activist and justice leader. Sign up for the NVDA training!
