COMMUNITY INTEGRATION PLATFORM
Civil Rights based non-violent programs create the most effective and efficient action to accomplish goals of integration and equal protection. These civil rights based programs raise public conscience by visibility, engagement, and the use of creative positive tension that reveals greater and more just values. These practices gain support and inclusion from citizens who are drawn by example and empathy to embrace the values and benefits of supporting and integrating the oppressed group. Community members perceive the values and desire affirmation by inclusion.READ MORE
Ultimately, non-violent action builds individual and community support which creates the needed shift in political will and objectives.
Integration in the Community seeks to resolve and include groups rather than defeat of the opposition. There is no Win by Defeat of the opposition- there is only change in perception and recognition of values that dissolves the conflict. Non-violence holds that the forces in opposition to integration are concepts and not the persons holding onto the concepts. Accordingly, there is no defeat, and no need to save face, only mutual success in shifting away from the beliefs that divide us.
