Nonviolence workshop to mark MLK Day

The Evanston History Center, which is closed this week for staff in-service training, will hold a free workshop next Monday in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

The workshop, on Kingian Nonviolence, will be led by trainers certified by the Center for Nonviolence and Peace Studies. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Dawes House, 225 Greenwood St.

Kingian Nonviolence is a philosophy and methodology that provides the knowledge, skills, and motivation necessary for people to pursue peaceful strategies for solving interpersonal and community problems.

Although there is no charge to attend the workshop, space is limited and registration is required. To register, call Karen Alvarez at the Center, (847) 475-3410. For more information, see the Center’s website.

The workshop is made possible by grants from the Elizabeth Beidler Tisdahl Foundation and the Beth Emet Tzedakah Fund, with support provided by Whole Foods Market Evanston South.
