The Fellowship of Reconciliation, based in Nyack, NY, is an international peace organization since the 1918. At this year's Fall Retreat (set for Friday-Sunday, October 14-16, 2011 at Camp Adams) the Oregon Chapter will explore nonviolence in both of its strategic and tactical forms. In order for nonviolence to be effective as a tool for social change, both are needed.

Anyone who has attended a nonviolent direct action which was designed to confront nonviolently government or corporate power structures can appreciate the need for demonstrators who know how to resist police and military units without violence. Training is essential.
