10 AM–3 PM
Workshop
Montrose / Museum District
3900 Yupon Street, Houston, TX, United States

Learn the skills and methods needed for nonviolent political change from the people whose techniques were used by the leaders of recent Egyptian, Burmese, and Georgian revolutions, among many others. Jamila Raqib, Executive Director of The Albert Einstein Institution, leads a workshop in the Rothko Chapel with opportunity for extensive dialogue and networking.

The Albert Einstein Institution was founded by Gene Sharp in 1983 to advance the study and use of strategic nonviolent action in conflicts throughout the world. It has been responsible for the translation and dissemination of some of the most systematic and influential texts on nonviolent action—which have been studied among resistance movements worldwide—including Sharp’s How Nonviolence Works, From Dictatorship to Democracy, and “198 Methods of Nonviolent Action,” available on their website in numerous languages.
