Shaazka Beyerle, professor and researcher in nonviolence studies, discusses nonviolent action as one of the greatest forces for both good and power that everyday people have access to, which is then strengthened when we all work together.
Dr. Beyerle breaks down how to use nonviolent methods to identify problems, develop objectives, and to make demands on authorities to disrupt injustice, and engage leadership to build systems based on peace and justice. The unique power of nonviolent tactics is that it has been proven to be effective in getting people to listen to each other rather than fight in order to achieve their goals.
