George Lakey

You *can* go beyond the boring limits of choosing between a march or a rally by coming to this workshop and learning about:

  • action logic
  • edgy actions
  • using actions leadership development
  • maximizing the empowerment potential of the actions you design
  • one-offs vs. campaigns

The workshop includes question time on the use of nonviolent direct action compared with other techniques for social change.

George Lakey is formerly a Lang Professor in Peace and Conflict Studies at Swarthmore College. He founded the Global Nonviolent Action Database.
