Nonviolence

Building the Beloved Community through Nonviolence

 

 

The mission of the MLK Center is to educate youth, empower families, and build community through quality multi-generational programs that advocate for our neighbors, promote racial justice, and provide a peaceful space to connect.

We believe that Dr King's vision for a Beloved Community is possible.  We can use his six principles and six steps to address the three evils of racism, poverty and militarism that impact our lives everyday.  We will achieve this through living and growing a culture of nonviolence.

 Join us by enrolling in our Nonviolence Training - a fourteen hour training that will increase your knowledge, expand your perspective, and help you take action to build the Beloved Community that loves and values everyone.

This is not a violence de-escalation training.  For more information on how this training might apply to your life, feel free to contact Charity Malone at (317) 923-4581 or Charity @ MLKCenterIndy.org

“This training provides a rich opportunity to explore the multidimensional nature of violence, the historical context of Dr. King’s nonviolent approach to change, and the application of nonviolence principles today as our country wrestles with profound challenges like racism, unjust wages, environmental destruction and more. Rather than just dissecting problems we face, the workshop presents a methodology for pursuing change, which leaves one feeling encouraged and inspired.”
