Nonviolent Solutions

This is my Final Project for our Civic Term course. For this 3 week term, I was in the class called, Global Peace. During these three weeks, we learned about Gandhi and his teachings/work, his journey using nonviolence, along with Martin Luther King and other works of nonviolence. We also learned about nonviolent ideas, inspired by the teachings of Gandhi, called Sarvodaya, Swadeshi, Swaraj, and Satyagraha. We also spent two Wednesdays of the term, watching Selma and a documentary called The Interrupters. They were very educational and related to what we were learning, which helped us gain further perspective on our material, and how to apply it. For our projects, we were supposed to find a conflict in our neighborhood and find a way to nonviolently figure out a solution for it. For my project, I decided to focus on the amount of trash that is in my neighborhood and I tried to find a way to educate people, as well writing to my Alderman to try and get different trash cans. In my slideshow, you can see the outline of my plan and my journey with the conflict. You can also see my poster and my letter to the Alderman, below. Enjoy!
