Non-Violence as a Tool for Student Advocacy | Terri Budek, Kerry Spicer
“Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives to violence” (Dorothy Thomas).

This session will explore the principles and steps of nonviolence as an approach to our work on a college campus. We will use this theory to highlight ways to build inclusive communities through our work with various campus constituents (student advocates, emergency teams/campus responders, departments, student organizations, etc.).
