New Way Nonviolence and Conflict Reconciliation trainings begin with forming a safe space for every participant. Part of this process involves the trainees creating Community Guidelines – an agreement on how they each will behave and act throughout the duration of their training. The Guidelines help to keep participants accountable and begin to form a unity and team among those being trained. This atmosphere helps facilitate safe, purposeful discussion later in the training.
These Community Guidelines were created by 2016 New Alternative participants that spent a day of their trip in Selma being trained in Nonviolence and Conflict Reconciliation.
