Event Description

The Connecticut Center for Nonviolence, (CTCN) in collaboration with Southern CT State University’s (SCSU) Multicultural Center and Department of Educational and Leadership & Policy Studies will present a two-day introduction to Kingian Nonviolence Conflict Reconciliation on Fri., March 6 from 1-7 p.m. and Sat., March 7, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at SCSU’s Engleman Hall in New Haven.

This two-day Introduction teaches the Six Principles of Nonviolence, as well as basic concepts, strategies and tools that individuals and communities can use to address conflict without resorting to violence. “The training provides a framework for conflict reconciliation management and mediation that can be applied to all areas of conflict in daily life,” says Dian Brown-Albert, SCSU coordinator of Multicultural Affairs, one of the event's organizers.

Participants will learn to analyze and identify different forms of conflict; study the Six Principles and Six Steps of Nonviolence; gain a historical perspective on significant nonviolence campaigns that changed laws in the United States; and develop cooperative problem-solving strategies needed to improve communications in the home, school, work or in any community setting by decreasing tension and hostility.

CTCN is a non-profit organization that empowers communities to reconcile conflict through education and the arts. CTCN has worked with hundreds of people to train and implement the philosophy and strategies of Kingian Nonviolence across racial, social, economic and generational divides.

There is no cost for the training for New Haven residents, or people who work in the New Haven community, but registration is required. Please email CTCN at info@ctnonviolence.org or call (860) 570-9075, or contact the SCSU Multicultural Center at (203) 392-5888 for more information.

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

What Zombies Can Teach Us About Vibrant Communities

This month, LISC and Cornell University will co-sponsor a conference on comprehensive approaches to turning vacant and “zombie” homes into community assets—and upending the conditions that create them in the first place. Helene Caloir, director of LISC’s $75 million New York State Housing Stabilization Fund, describes how this work is part and parcel of the broad challenges of revitalizing neighborhoods, dismantling racial inequity and sparking economic mobility.

“Café, Cultura, Vida”

As Hispanic Heritage Month comes to a close, we checked in with Sandra Flores, owner of Azukar Coffee, a small business percolating on the South Side of Phoenix that shows just how important a local gathering place can be to a neighborhood.

Changing Health by Changing the Community

In an op-ed for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones and Howard Kern, president and CEO of Sentara Healthcare, describe how their new $100 million will take aim at the social determinants of health in Virginia. Investing in housing, job training and placement, education and transportation, among other requisites of a healthy life, are key to closing the life expectancy gap and creating a strong economy, they argue. Now is the time for corporations, nonprofits and charitable organizations to play leadership roles in making those investments a reality.
