Woman's March on Austin is hosting an event is open to ALL marchers that want to learn skills to conduct a peaceful protest (with hope to livestream the event for those that cannot attend).
Their lessons will come from the teaching of Martin Luther King Jr's 6 principles of non-violent action. The first of which states...
"Nonviolence is the way of the strong."
Nonviolence is not for the cowardly, the weak, the passive, the apathetic or the fearful. "Nonviolent resistance does resist" he wrote. "It is not a method of stagnant passivity. While the nonviolent resister is passive in the sense that he is not physically aggressive toward his opponent, his mind and emotions are always active, constantly seeking to persuade his opponent that he is wrong. The method is passive physically, but strongly active spiritually. It is not passive non-resistance to evil; it is active nonviolent resistance to evil."
Join them in the gym of the family center at the First Methodist Church to learn about the rest of MLK's 6 principles and more. Click here for more information.
