Step 1: Review Training Options
Nonviolence365®: Be Love (6 hours)
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. stated: “What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive and that love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love.” BE LOVE is a growing movement for justice, launched by The King Center. Through this love-centered praxis, we aim to help society answer three critical questions facing humanity: 1) Who must we be? 2) What must we do? 3) What are we to accomplish? Furthermore, this love-centered praxis is undergirded by a multi-pronged call to action: (1) Be Love; (2) Build Community; and (3) Influence and implement policies that promote the creation of a more just, humane, equitable and peaceful world. BE LOVE urges individuals to look at love as a powerful force for good that advances justice for all. Through this 6-hour series, is comprised of the following sessions: Redefining Love, Revolutionary Love and Reconciliatory Love.
During this 6-hour series, participants will:
- Understand how love is connected to justice, based on Dr. King’s definition of justice.
- Explore and convey increased understanding of how love implements the demands of justice.
- Examine and demonstrate one tangible way to exhibit Revolutionary Love.
