On Tuesday, 14 May 2019 WR Nonviolence held its second Viewpoints forum at the Queen Street Commons Cafe, called Viewpoints on Poverty: Exploring Life In The Margins. Matthew Albrecht from WRN hosted, and the discussion panel was:
Join us for an inclusive evening with a panel presentation, group discussion, and personal action to achieve nonviolent solutions for people living a life of poverty.
This Viewpoints forum tries to bring the perspectives of a person with experience living a life of poverty, a facilitator working in the field, an academic, and a policy maker.
There will be a Question and Answer session after the panel presentation, then we will break into groups with each panelist to discuss common themes and solutions. A spokesperson from each group will then report back to everyone.

On the United Nations International Day of Peace on Friday, 21 September 2018 members of WR Nonviolence and friends met to talk about peace. This was a Supplemental Discussion Night, to complement our regular project planning meetings held every Tuesday. The topic was supposed to be Finding Peace In Our Local Community, but discussion strayed to politics, and also on how to engage people in the community to participate in the projects put on by WR Nonviolence.
Participating were Peter, Michael, Allan, Barb and William, who were joined by David, Laurel and Bob. Unfortunately, Barb and William had to leave before Laurel had a chance to take pictures.
