Nonviolent Warrior Training

Learn how to be an effective nonviolent warrior through a program May 28-29 at the Peaslee Neighborhood Center. Activists often turn to nonviolent agitation when all other channels of social change seem blocked, but many don´t achieve the full value of the action because it´s not connected to a strategy or to a richer understanding of how nonviolent action works. George Lakey, director of Training for Change, seeks to rectify that. The $98 fee includes all meals. Scholarships are available but space is limited, so contact 513-579-8547 or info@ijpc-cincinnati.org as soon as possible to register. Find out more at www.trainingforchange.org . The program is presented by Training For Change and sponsored by Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center.

Political Education, Mastication

The Cincinnati AFL-CIO Labor Council has lined up U.S. Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del) to speak at this year´s COPE (Committee on Political Education) Dinner. The dinner, which starts at 6 p.m. June 18th at the Westin Hotel, costs $125 per person or $1,250 for a table. For more information, call 421-1846.

Beer and Justice

Drinking Liberally, an informal, an inclusive Democratic drinking club, meets at 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays. You don´t have to be a policy expert and this isn´t a book club; just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, vent frustration and hang out in an environment where it´s not taboo to talk politics. After roaming the first Tuesday of every month, the group regularly settles back into The Comet in Northside. For more information, contact Chris Berger at cberger4@cinci.rr.com .
