CONFRONT VIOLENCE WITH POWERFUL NONVIOLENCE.

DEVELOP INTERNAL RESOURCES FOR THE LONG HAUL.

TAKE A BIG NEXT STEP IN YOUR LEADERSHIP.

Join SALT AND LIGHT, an intensive Nonviolence Leadership Training and Development program, October 2010-May 2011

 

SALT AND LIGHT supports leaders and communities who want to grow strong enough to challenge violence, racism, and poverty
using active nonviolence.

15 'You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot.
14 'You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. -- Matthew 5:13-15


SALT AND LIGHT is based in Kingian nonviolence, the methodology developed by Martin Luther King, Jr., and his colleagues in the US Civil Rights movement.
