Peace Paradigm Radio: Truth and Reconciliation with David Ragland

 Access this podcast above or on the Metta Center website

Ragland2-300x247Dr. David Ragland is co-founder of the Truth Telling Project, an initiative based in Ferguson, Missouri  that aims to transform structural violence and racism through the adaptation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) model. While most models of the TRC happen after the violence has ended, the question posed by the creators of the Truth Telling Project was how they could initiate such a process when the violence has not yet stopped. Hence, an emphasis on making space for telling and hearing truth as a means for re-affirming human dignity. Learn more on our show about this work and how to get involved.

After we talk with Dr. Ragland, Michael and Stephanie get into Nonviolence in the News. A very educational show! We hope you enjoy it and please send us your feedback…and support the community radio that it airs on!
