Workshop: "Historical Perspectives on Social Change" with Dr. Christopher Key Chapple

Social change through nonviolent methods has a long global history. This workshop will explore how the silent meditation of the Quakers helped bring about the end of slavery and inspired the rise of global feminism. We will also discuss the transformative power of personal practice as found in Thoreau, Whitman, Tolstoy, Maya Angelou, and Mary Oliver.
