Leadership Dialogue Training in LA on Gun Violence Prevention

Long-time NCDD member Avis Ridley-Thomas just sent me a brief announcement (promising more detail soon) about a “Leadership Dialogue Training” the LA-based Days of Dialogue is holding on January 19th.

Gun Violence Prevention: A Leadership Dialogue Training, facilitated by Days of Dialogue


Days of Dialogue and the Institute for Nonviolence in Los Angeles will conduct on January 19, 2013 Gun Violence Prevention:  A Leadership Dialogue Training as part of the Empowerment Congress Summit at USC.

We will focus on solutions to some of the vexing problems which have resulted from policies which allow easy access to weapons. Topics will include new research on gun violence prevention, the Second Amendment in the courts, and lawmakers and the gun lobby. Participants will learn how to conduct a dialogue in order to help them to determine the most effective next steps they may pursue as a result of this critical and timely training.

Registration info and additional details can be found on the Days of Dialogue site at www.daysofdialogue.org.

  1. We are currently at capacity for this Leadership Dialogue Training. To paraphrase Martin Luther King Jr. “Everyone can be a leader because anyone can serve.” We would like to tweet and blog for NCDD, whom we are highlighting in the session. Our publications include Quick Tips for Facilitators and a comprehensive Discussion Guide. It will be posted on http://www.daysofdialogue.org in the days ahead. We will post on NCDD’s blog and Tweet to the NCDD Twitter feed, if possible on Saturday.
