TOPIC: Nonviolence and Social Justice
Ghandi said “Be the change you want to see in the world.” This has been assumed to mean that nonviolence and pacifism lead to social justice. Through sharing stories of our own social justice work we will explore to what extent this has been the case in our own lives. The goal of the retreat is to clarify our own approaches to social justice and to create new paths for action.
