Alternatives to Violence Workshop

Cambridge Community Center
5 Callender St
Cambridge , MA


AVP is an important outreach of Friends and friends, promoting peaceful solutions to conflict and violence or potential violence, both physical and social. The project began in prisons as a collaboration between people imprisoned and Quakers. The center of AVP is transforming power, which in itself changes lives.  

We practice community and skill building.  You will learn:

  • To speak honestly without attacking
  • Offer support for taking risks
  • Practice resolving daily conflicts

This basic workshop is the first step to becoming an AVP facilitator for those interested.

Please join us in this exciting opportunity of learning, community and outreach—for both teens and adults.

When: Friday, January 18, 6–9 p.m.; Saturday, January 19, 8–4 p.m.; Sunday, January 20, 2–6 p.m.

Registration: Minga Claggett-Borne

Sponsors: Cambridge Community Center, Cambridge Friends Meeting, AVP Mass 

Donations are welcome.  Some food provided, including Saturday lunch. More details to follow.
