Review for Bay Area Nonviolent Communication, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a co-founding member of the BayNVC Safer Communities Project. Since 2002 our team has been volunteering by bringing Nonviolent Communication (NVC) teaching and practice to inmates at San Quentin Prison, also with parolees and family members, in local jails for men and for women. NVC has shifted perspectives and strategies, transforming lives. BayNVC has many projects and outreaches into the community, the nation and the world, including being the fiscal sponsor for the NVC Ethiopia Project, which I co-organized with an international team from Uganda, Burundi, Kenya, Ethiopia, Germany and the U.S. In Jan/Feb 2012, we taught NVC to over 400 individuals during four weeks of training in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, inspiring and transforming lives, sparking an on-going group of individuals working to bring more NVC to others in Africa. Way too many projects for me to list here, so I have related those that I am most familiar with. OH- then to add one more that has personally benefitted me...every year BayNVC offers a Leadership Program with international participants. I was a participant in the first Leadership Program in 2002, which transformed my life and inspired me to reach into my full potential as a leader and social change agent.
