NFPOC OFFERS SCHOLARSHIPS FOR NON-VIOLENCE TRAINING

To show our support for the Creating A Culture of Peace program being offered by the Fellowship of Reconciliation, North Fork People of Conscience are offering five need-based scholarships to enable five people in the community to participate in the three-day workshop to be held at the Southold Methodist Church on September 22, 23 and 24.

In the words of the organizers, here is the purpose of the workshop:

**************************************************************
Peace is possible

You may believe there is a need to replace violence with peace in your community, across our country and around the world. Did you know that you have the power? Creating a Culture of Peace is a program which uses an interfaith and intergenerational approach to help people just like you achieve nonviolence in their communities. CCP is a program of FOR—Fellowship of Reconciliation—which works with schools, civic organizations, veterans, congregations, and many others seeking personal and social change through practice of active nonviolence.

We invite you to our three-day workshop.

Creating a Culture of Peace
Nonviolence Training for Personal and Social Change

***************************************************************
The cost of the workshop is $75 of which the NFPOC scholarship will pay $60.

If you or anybody you know--of any age or faith--would be unable to attend this nonviolence training workshop without the scholarship, please email us at nfpofc@optonline.net or call Pat at 631 765 4612. Please tell us why you would like to attend the workshop and how you think you might use the training to achieve nonviolence in our community.

If you are not applying for the scholarship, you may use the attached form to register for the workshop. William Moore at 631-765-4663 or Lorraine DeArmitt at 631-765-3449, organizers of the workshop, can answer any questions you may have.
