Celebrate the International Day of Nonviolence with a Book Launch Teachers Teaching Nonviolence

Edited by Christian Bracho and Danita Dodson, this book reflects the understandings and experiences of eighteen educators--ahimsa fellows trained in the histories, philosophies, and practices of nonviolence at the intensive two-week residential institutes hosted by the Ahimsa Center at Cal Poly Pomona. Drawn from all over the United States and representing diverse grade levels and subject areas, these teachers returned to their educational institutions and communities to continue the work of nonviolence in their teaching practices.

Their stories illustrate the powerful impact nonviolence education can have in the lives of students as well as teachers, as they navigate schools plagued by physical violence and emotional stress of standardized curricula and assessments.

The book emphasizes the ways that teachers can act as agents of nonviolent social change through curricular experiments and pedagogical innovations, shifting attention toward nonviolence as an uplifting and humanizing alternative to the corrosive ways of violence.

Friday, October 2: 3:30-5:00 p.m.
