"We're talking about stopping violence with nonviolence." ~Mary Hanna, Meta Peace Team
What kind of training is useful and necessary to use nonviolence to interrupt violence? Mary Hanna, a trainer for the Meta Peace Team in Lansing, Michigan, highlights the work of peace teams and draws on decades of experience in de-escalating violent scenarios to answer this question for Nonviolence Radio. She is recorded at the Metta Center's office in Petaluma just after hosting a four hour peace team skills and bystander intervention training.
In part two of our show, around the half an hour mark, Michael Nagler catches us up on new resources, upcoming events, and general news in the world of nonviolence. It's inspiring and empowering, so you won't want to miss it.
