MPT was fortunate to host the Shanti Sena Network (VIRTUAL) Summit Meeting:  an opportunity for people actively engaged in Unarmed Civilian Protection (and those interested in it) to gather for resource sharing, skills training, tips for efficacy, brainstorming ideas for our future work, and introducing those new to Unarmed Civilian Protection to the concept and effectiveness of active, assertive, collaborative, community-based nonviolence.  The speakers and presenters were outstanding.  Currently, we are in the process of downloading the taped versions of each workshop, and will offer them to you as soon as they are available.  Many thanks to all those who made this incredible event possible.

Our Challenge:
Breaking Through Fear and Hate to Forge a New Way

In our current dangerous “political” climate, we need to stretch ourselves - to better understand how and why “the other half” of people think and act the way they do, and better understand evidence of our own biases that can be part of the problem. This webinar presents a big picture framework that can be helpful in our efforts to confront violence and heal our broken world.  Presented by MPT's co-founder, Peter Dougherty.
