Now what?

"We need to train to be effective activists, just as we trained to be effective soldiers. CCP nonviolence training was the foundation for my work. It was critical in preparing me to be an effective activist for justice and to end war.”

Four new projects planned at PA training

Over a May weekend in Stroudsburg, PA, participants in a 20-hour CCP basic training worked hard, laughed a lot, practiced skills, and analyzed the stages of building a nonviolent movement as well as how to ensure community solidarity to make it happen.

Here are the projects the break-out groups designed as part of the last module in the training:

  • Grow it, Eat it, Poop it (teaching young children nutrition through gardening, food preparation, and health lessons)

De-escalation of Conflict – Dos and Don'ts (designing a program using jujitsu and other techniques)

Letters of Hope to Prisoners (organizing a group for letter writing)

Westend Feed the Homeless (creating a van delivery system for 200 in the rural area)
