Nonviolence trainers’ resource manual

January 21, 2017 | By: James Whelan

Training for nonviolence can be an important first step in helping people to confront fear and support each other when facing police, community and institutional opposition to their activism. The Trainers’ Resource Manual is a collection of training tools that can be used to assemble workshops to match the needs, experience and availability of groups working for social change. The manual is one outcome of a six-month partnership between Pt’chang Nonviolent Community Safety Group and the Donald Groom Peace Committee. The aim of that partnership has been to substantially develop the capacity of trainers around Australia to provide nonviolence training to the wider community.
