In the past KW Peace would hold occasional pot luck meetings – just a time for folks to share what their group’s been up to, to chat about projects, successes, difficulties, share resources etc.

The format of our online meeting will be to (re)introduce ourselves, talk about the group(s) you work with, and whatever else we want to chat about.

If you have thoughts or questions please let us know.

Looking forward to virtually meeting

Kitchener responds to COVID-19

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.

During this Stage 3 of the COVID recovery program, visit Kitchener Responds to COVID-19 for the latest updates.

 

#COVID19 response from @WRNonviolence

WRN | Waterloo Region NonviolenceHello Friends: In our own efforts at social distancing, we’re cancelling our regular Tuesday night meetings until further notice.

The Viewpoints on Incarceration forum originally scheduled for 28 April 2020 is postponed; a new date will be announced later.

Planning for the Nonviolence Day In The Park continues. A new date, likely in September, will be announced soon! The date is unchanged, taking place on Saturday, 18 July 2020 from Noon to 5:00pm. Registration for exhibitors is now open!

Thank you for your continued support!

Season’s Greetings! No meetings on Holiday Eves!

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!

Supplemental Discussion Nights Are Back!

Supplemental Discussion
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!)
