Introduction to AVP

Introduction to the Alternatives to Violence Project

Tuesday, 18 June 2013, 6 to 9 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 4448 Pikes Landing Road (across from the Princess Hotel)

The Alaska Peace Center, Chena Ridge Friends Meeting, and the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship invites you to join us for an introduction to AVP (Alternatives to Violence Project).

Carroll (Haggard) Boone is an AVP Facilitator who just returned from being on a Friends Peace Team in Katmandu, Nepal. Carroll grew up in Fairbanks and is a graduate of Lathrop High and UAF!

AVP was started in 1975 when inmates at Greenhaven Prison (NY) asked the local Quakers to design a non-violence workshop that could be arranged inside the facility. The resulting workshop was so successful that it spread to communities throughout the US and internationally. AVP is used in prisons, war zones and other places of conflict to offer peaceful outcomes to violent situations.

If possible please RSVP to Carrie at 750-1049 or chugny@yahoo.com so we can have materials ready for you. For more information check out the AVP website at http://www.avpusa.org/.
