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.

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
