August radio show on KFCF 88.1 with Doug Noll as guest

Below is the link to our Center’s monthly Stir It Up Show on August 9th. I think you will really enjoy listening to guest, Doug Noll, who spoke about his amazing Prison of Peace Project and also his new book “De-escalate: How to Calm an Angry Person in 90 seconds or less”. This book will be available to buy in mid September. During the show, Doug generously told us how to get a free copy of his book, paying just $7.00 for shipping, and he is going to keep doing this as long as he can.

FCNV: August Calendar

Sunday, July 30th at 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., the Fresno Soap Co., 1470 N. Van Ness Ave., Fresno presents the play “Us and Them” by Deshad Cato about the ongoing problem of police use of inordinate force against people of color. It mirrors the Black Lives Matter movement, but has no qualms about taking all the characters’ perspectives into consideration. With all the news of repeated police killings, this play is revelatory and enlightening, as it examines the inner-workings of institutionalized racism and how it robs us of our essential humanity. Ultimately, the audience is challenged to think, open up to experience, and change the status-quo. There will be a post-performance discussion with the playwright and director. This evening’s performance will be a fundraiser for the Fresno Center for Nonviolence. Refreshments will be made available. There will be a social hour with a live jazz band following the discussion, with refreshments and wine, sold by the glass. Tickets are $20.00 available at the door.
