The Power of Nonviolence with Jamila Raqib

Nonviolence and peace are not the same thing. Nonviolent action is action. It’s not passive. It requires courage and dedication and perseverance and being very, very smart and even more strategic. It is an act of destruction, but not an act of bloodletting. It is the path we need to take to tear down the systems of oppression that are so very evident in America today and build something better and more equitable for all of us.

This week we’re honored to be joined by Jamila Raqib. Jamila is a former Nobel peace prize nominee and director of the Albert Einstein Institution which promotes nonviolent action around the world.
