I work with college students and I want to learn to help them sort through problems using nonviolence. Every spring break I take students on a trip to learn about the Civil Rights Movement and that is where I first became interested in nonviolence as a strategy for creating change. Last year on our trip we were able to meet Dr. LaFayette for the first time and that is what inspired me to want to attend this training.
