> Speaking Peace - An Introduction to Nonviolent Communication
> Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a way of communicating that strengthens
> our ability to stay in touch with our humanity and get our needs met, even
> under difficult circumstances. Instead of habitual responses, our words
> become conscious responses based on a clear awareness of what we are
> observing, feeling, and wanting. We are led to express ourselves with
> honesty and clarity, while paying respectful and empathic attention to
> others. Check out this brief intro video about NVC:
> ABOUT OUR PRESENTER

> Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring
> progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this
> "Movement Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and
> build new visions for our movement(s).
> SoJust hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share
> common values but may work on different issues. We host monthly socials
> that allow for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a monthly
> ProfDev Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which provides access to
> affordable professional development to increase our individual capacity for
> movement building.
> With over 2500 members and 8 years of creating a diverse cross-issue
> community in Boston (185+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best
> place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking
> for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.
> YES, WE MEAN YOU. We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual
> orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone
> like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
