Large Crowds De-escalation and Nonviolence
July 13, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Interactive workshop looking at nonviolence in the context of activism.
This training will provide:
• a deeper understanding of nonviolence
• practical de-escalation skills for maintaining nonviolence with small groups and large crowds
Nonviolence is one of the core principles which is non-negotiable for everyone who wants to take action under the name of XR. De-escalation is a key skill for anyone involved in any action. It helps maintain nonviolent interactions and atmosphere. XR’s nonviolence has both a strategic and ethical dimension. Through this deliberate practice, we can model, or ‘prefigure’, the future we hope to create.
