Our groups have had the opportunity to delve into a rich history of the American south.

In times of trouble, nonviolence is a guiding light towards justice.
How to implement nonviolence, and the principles of nonviolence is something everyone can learn. In this workshop, we looked at how the ideas of nonviolence can be applied personal, professional, and politically in our own lives. Hearing the Lafayette’s share their incredible stories empowered us and inspired deep, meaningful conversations on the applications of nonviolence in the modern age.
We would like to say thank you to all our pilgrimage alumni and contributors that help make what we do possible. Thanks to all the people and organizations that educate, inspire, and empower us. Thank you to Nathan Bean for putting together this video from the spring 2017 pilgrimage.
