When people go into the military, they receive weeks of training. Yet those of us who are activists for social change often have not trained adequately in the skills that would make our work more effective. Host, Marlena Willis, talks with Kazu Haga, teacher of Kingian Non Violence and author or the book Healing Resistance, about the importance of doing the work that allows us to be truly non violent and healed enough from our own trauma to do the organizing that is necessary to turn this world around and toward justice.
Kazu Haga is the founder of the East Point Peace Academy, a core member of the Ahimsa Collective and the Yet-To-Be-Named Network, and author of Healing Resistance: A Radically Different Response to Harm. He teaches and facilitates nonviolence, restorative justice and organizing in prisons, with youth and community leaders.
