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.

    As a Worcester native I am excited and grateful that the Center For Nonviolent Solutions has opened in the Heart of the Commonwealth. What is too often missing in progressive’s objections to war? A viable alternative. Here is a place where that alternative can be found.
    Many years of success in spreading the word!
