As April 4 approaches marking 44 years since Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s body was taken from us, we at the Connecticut Center for Nonviolence are here to tell you that although he was shot, they missed!
His work, our work and the legacy lives on. Nonviolence is the sword that heals.
Attend our next Two-Day Core Introduction to Kingian Nonviolence Training on April 20 & 21, 2012.
Let your voice be heard in person or by your generous tax deductible donation at our SONG POWER – SING FOR YOUR LIVES! FUNDRAISER Workshop, we are raising funds for Nonviolence Training for Hartford Youth. Sunday April 29, 2-4pm.
Every penny you donate will go toward bringing this powerful body of knowledge to those who do not have the resources to attend a training. A training in Kingian Nonviolence can save the life of a teen stricken by hopelessness and oppressed by lack of information.
Today in Hartford hundreds of people are gathered for the funeral of two young men who were killed in a car accident. Instantly, youth enraged by the conditions turned to retaliation as their perceived only recourse. One of our strongest peace warriors stood before an impassioned youth armed with a gun. He peacefully talked the grief stricken boy down.
It’s that serious, it’s happening right now. We may not see this, making it easier to dismiss it all, but I assure you, every day we are loosing lives in our Capital City and across the state. If not physically, then mentally and emotionally. Hopelessness is a condition that robs your life before it even begins. It’s unconscionable, it must and can be changed.
You are the solution.

” I cannot sit idly by in Atlanta and not be concerned about what happens in Birmingham. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly” ~ MLK
