In March 2016 Campaign Nonviolence held a Conference call to organize and prepare for the Week of Nonviolent Actions, September 18-25, 2016. On the call we heard from teacher and nonviolence trainer Robin Wildman who has helped implement nonviolence education into her elementary school. If you missed that call, you can listen here.
