Matthew Reinhardt

Rhode Island/URI, USA

(Level I – 2015) in PSY 478 Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Resolution Course, URI

Matt joined the Center for Nonviolence & Peace Studies on the Alternative Nonviolence Spring Break trip to Nepal in 2015.

Matt RI plan to use the nonviolence education received in this course in my own activist work now and upon completion of my degree program. I have gained valuable knowledge and skills of how to approach injustice with love and peace which will serve me for the rest of my life. I hope to engage in nonviolent environment activism in the future and Dr. King’s teachings will be the cornerstone of my work. I am forever grateful to Paul and Kay for this work and what they have taught me this semester.

I also plan to use what I have learned regarding conflict reconciliation in my own personal relationships and how I approach any conflict externally as well as internally. I have learned wonderful skills for addressing the root causes of conflict and how to approach any difficulty with peace, love and understanding.
