This call is relevant for anyone wanting to work for positive change, especially with a strategic perspective.
Bayard Rustin, planner of the 1963 March on Washington, brought strategy concepts from Richard Hauser to the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950’s and early 1960’s. David Jehnsen was fortunate enough to learn from both Bayard Rustin and Richard Hauser, and he will share three tools for organizing and mobilizing from his time with them.
Jehnsen will discuss the “Six Categories of Leadership” that can hold values of nonviolence and democracy in a community; how they can assist with the creation of a 60-70 person leadership cabinet for an organizing effort; and the “Three Dimensions of Nonviolence Organizing and Mobilizing” that can be directed by an organizing group.
This call will be of special interest for people trained in Kingian Nonviolence, as this content is included in the Leader’s Manual but not fully covered in Level I or Level II training.
Richard and Hephzibah Hauser’s work in national and international social movements was used in part to codify portions of Dr. King’s concepts of strategy, analysis, and organization into the Kingian Nonviolence approach. More info: http://www.wwdesign.info/hauser/kurz.html

Purpose of the Kingian Nonviolence Community of Practice
This emerging community of nonviolence practitioners seeks to weave connections and share reflections among people who are intentionally applying the heritage of active nonviolence, especially but not limited to those applying and developing the legacy of Kingian Nonviolence. Our leadership is strengthened when we are connected with others in a community of reflection and experimentation.
This Community of Practice is for
People intentionally applying the heritage of active nonviolence in their leadership in current social change movements
People grounded at some level in the Kingian Nonviolence approach – or interested to learn more
People more advanced in Kingian Nonviolence who are developing it for new applications & settings
This community is a place to
reflect collectively on our leadership as nonviolence practitioners,
learn from each others’ victories and challenges, and
contribute to the development of the art and science of nonviolence.
We do this so that
our organizing and nonviolence work can mature,
we can improve our individual and collective leadership, and
we can achieve greater successes in building peace and justice.
