Nonviolence Training – for Peace Ambassadors with Rev. Felicia Parazaider: This 3-hour session is open to all but required for those who agree to serve as a Peace Ambassador during the Women’s March on January 21. While we are not engaging in civil disobedience and do not expect arrests, there is always the possibility of counter-protestors or violent agitators. This session teaches the CLARA technique for nonviolent engagement, de-escalation skills, and other practical tools. Participants will be taught to: a) remain clear, calm, and centered in a conflict, b) de-escalate potential conflict situations, and c) be a safe, effective Peace Ambassador. The session includes role-play and practical hands-on activities. Upon completion of the training, those who wish to serve as Peace Ambassadors will sign up and be provided further instructions of concrete duties.
