ABOUT SNV • ABOUT US AND OUR COMMUNITY
Forming a collaborative community based effort to promote nonviolence during SNV.

1. Who are we here in this room .. and what are we already doing?
2. SNV – what is it, how it might be a framework for helping us build on existing work?
3. How might we collaborate and leverage events that are already in place to promote SNV?

EXPERIENTIAL PRACTICE
Shift into groups of people who don't know each other.

Two questions ….
1. Name, Organization, what (or who) called you here today?
2. Deep breath for minute – Recall a memory of a kindness shown to you by a stranger …. And how that felt.

WHY WE BEGAN OUR MEETING THIS WAY:

1. Peaceful world begins with relationships
2. Relationships are based on connection .. when we connect a personal level.
