Dear Community Partner,
Nonviolence365™ is a two-day education and training certification program facilitated by the youngest daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Dr. Bernice A. King, based on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s nonviolent leadership philosophy and methods. The King Center is encouraging people all over the world to embrace Nonviolence365™ every day of the year. The primary goal of Nonviolence 365™, is to help people adopt nonviolence as a way of life, resulting in decreased violence in homes, workplaces, schools, communities and making an impact on a global scale.
“My parents believed, as do I, that “nonviolence is the answer to the crucial moral and political questions of our time” and that it is the path to the Beloved Community,” says Bernice A. King. She continues, “By leading the organizing of the upcoming Nonviolence365™ Education and Training, Ujamaa Place is helping to provide the answer and the path for young men to reengage community with great purpose. Further, the deep disparities in education and economics that exist in communities of color in Minnesota cannot be ignored and will not correct themselves. Strong community partnerships are required to bring about change. My father’s nonviolent philosophy and methodology will provide strength, spirit and strategy for these community partnerships. As The King Center and the world prepare to commemorate the 50th anniversary of my father’s assassination on April 4, 2018, we are honored to continue his legacy by educating 130 men in St. Paul on how to create a more just, humane, peaceful world, beginning in their communities, with Nonviolence365™.” ~Dr. Bernice A. King, CEO The King Center
Ujamaa Place has a limited number of scholarships available to offset the $500.00 per student cost. These scholarships are issued on a pre-registration first come, first serve basis. Students must attend both days to receive their certification certificate. To qualify for the scholarship the participant(s) must; 1) be between the ages of 16 – 25; 2) have a vested interest in making change in our society; and 3) be committed to attending the entirety of the two-day Nonviolence365™ training.
With your support, Ujamaa Place can offer more scholarships to the young men that have registered and requested scholarship assistance.
