The WR Nonviolence regular Tuesday night meetings are “plenary sessions”, where we plan upcoming events like Day In The Park or IDOPAN. Although the agenda gives 15 minutes for talking about our experiences with nonviolence during the week, we invariably exceed the 15 minutes, so we need this Supplemental Discussion night to give us the time we need to talk about nonviolence without the pressure of adhering to an agenda.
The first meeting for this Supplemental Discussion series will be the first Thursday in December, the 5th. We can decide from there what the best date for future Supplemental Discussions will be.

Come to the doors on Duke Street, and ring the bell for the Social Development Centre.
Although Discussion Night is scheduled for 7:00pm, the Civic Hub is available at 6:00pm so we could start early (and help setting up and taking down chairs is always appreciated!)
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.
On Saturday, 24 March 2018 a rally was held at Wilfrid Laurier University to show support for the victims of the shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on 14 February 2018.
Bob Jonkman from WR Nonviolence spoke about the meaning of Nonviolence, and there were spoken-word presentations from the students in the Crossing Borders Program. The event was organized by Rupinder Mangat.
