How can we effectively work to end violence in our communities and globally? What strategies have worked? What can I do?
We close the Origins of Violence with a brief chapter on what communities and individuals can do to help promote a more peaceful world. You will hear from experts on how nonviolent protests have shown evidence of remarkable effectiveness in promoting both small and large-scale social and governmental change. Next you will listen to the comparison of violence as a public health epidemic, including data-driven steps to halt the disease of violence. Finally, you will see the effect of a small group of dedicated activists who have helped reform their own lives after committing acts of violence, as well as that of their communities.
After you have finished watching the materials below, take a moment to look at the Additional Reading to familiarize yourself with more information on the origins of violence, from biology to society, and opportunities for growth and intervention.
