Consent and Nonviolence: Radio

Two guests explore the topic of consent from a variety of angles on today’s show. Irene van der Zande, founder of Kidpower and co-author of Doing Right by Our Kids, shares insights on how to train people of all ages in setting positive and healthy boundaries, and why it’s so very important for nonviolence. And Joe Worthy, national organizer for the Children’s Defense Fund, jumps into the conversation about the relationship between consent and nonviolent action, emphasizing that consent in nonviolence is not just about removing consent but knowing what we are ready to say ‘yes’ to. Listen in.
