Course description 
The Relevance of Nonviolence
This course looks at the transformative and sustainable nature of nonviolent change. Videos from the A Force More Powerful series will provide the opportunity to deconstruct historical moments where nonviolent techniques helped various groups create change. In addition, the teaching techniques for this course will be centered around methodologies that will encourage each participant to bring their own life experience's into the course conversations. There will be short homework readings in this non-lecture formatted class. A number of guest speakers will join the class in conversation. All course elements will be available on the instructor’s blog at rickgrierreynolds.blogspot.com
