  • Expressing Ourselves How to express anger and other strong emotions safely and without harming ourselves or others. Effective, creative, and nonviolent ways to communicate. Using language that connects, respects, and empowers. Recognizing the power of language and thought forms to create reality.
  • Engaging Our Community with Art & Technology Using art and/or technology to get our ideas out to a larger audience. Addressing injustice through art – music, spoken word, visual art, performance art. Working with social media – Facebook, Twitter, instagram.
