Worcester Center for Nonviolent Solutions kickoff
Great turnout for today’s kickoff event for Worcester’s Center for Nonviolent Solutions. Standing room only!
Catholic Worker Claire Schaeffer-Duffy was emcee; Nate Pickens of Mosaic talked about his own experiences with violence in Worcester; Michael True explained the purpose of the Center; Congressman Jim McGovern shared some stories from his life and introduced keynote speaker Colman McCarthy, journalist and educator, who gave a wide-ranging talk on nonviolence and the people who practice it.
Nice to see a lot of people I haven’t seen in months; especially nice to see Bishop McManus in attendance.
