Interrupting Incarceration with Nonviolence

 

Kazu Haga of East Point Peace Academy comes back to Nonviolence Radio with one of his students, Dion Martin. Martin became a trainer for Kingian Nonviolence through Kazu’s program while incarcerated at the San Francisco County Jail. After three years, he was acquitted and is now exploring ways of sharing his practice with others who have been in similar situations. Listen to the way their stories weave together, and what they have to say about nonviolence. Stay for the second half of the show where we explore the underreported gems of nonviolence in our news, including a tribute to the late scholar and nonviolent strategist, Gene Sharp.
