My big idea is to travel the world

Written by communications major Marilyn Soum ’14

During Spring Break, I joined 17 other URI students on a whirlwind trip to Nepal that was as exciting as it was educational. We traveled halfway around the world with URI’s Center of Nonviolence and Peace Studies, to learn techniques for promoting peace, social justice, and transformational change in various settings and contexts. The International Kingian Nonviolence conference was led by URI’s own Psychology Professor Paul Bueno de Mesquita and a URI alumna, social justice advocate, and female rapper, Kalyana Champlain. The training, and the whole journey, transformed me in ways I never imagined. Click here to read more.

Dr. King’s speech entitled, “The Future of Integration,” advocated for civil rights and nonviolent protest for social change. He said, “Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”
