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.

Due to logistical difficulties in booking the Rotunda at Kitchener City Hall, there will be no event this year for MLK Day.
Since 2008 the Nonviolence Festival had been hosting a yearly celebration of the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. on MLK Day, the third Monday in January. WR Nonviolence had hoped to continue this tradition.
