We regret announcing that our 16th Nonviolence Day in the Park will be cancelled. We felt that there is too much uncertainty in the coming weeks and months.
WR Nonviolence continues to meet virtually every Tuesday to plan our way forward. Contact us if you’d like to join the discussion – how can we communicate the importance of nonviolence during our current pandemic?
The 16th Nonviolence Day in the Park is scheduled for Saturday September 26, noon to 5pm on Roos Island, Victoria Park, Kitchener.
WR Nonviolence wishes everyone a happy holiday, and best wishes for the season!
Our last two regular Tuesday evening meetings in 2019 fall on Christmas Eve (24 December) and New Years Eve (31 December), and so we’ll be spending the time at home with family and friends. Regular meetings resume on Tuesday, 7 January 2020!
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.
