Youth Nonviolence Lock-in

mlkA Youth Lock-in featuring the Six Principles of Kingian Nonviolence will be held on January 16-17 at First Baptist Church, Meriden. This event will be led by trainers from the Connecticut Center for Nonviolence.

Violence, especially as it impacts youth and involves race, is part of our culture, as seen in recent events in Ferguson and New York City. In this event youth will learn how to be agents of justice and change through non-violence -- learn how to be world-changers!

Space is limited, so register now!
