Educational Plan for the Annual Celebration of the Season of Nonviolence

Let us work together to overcome the unacceptable level of violence in our beloved Country. Contact your School Administrator and/or School Board Members at your local schools with this education plan. Let the halls of our public schools resound with the ideals and successes of nonviolence. Through knowledge empower the students with skills for a nonviolent life style.
