The Monthly NYC-DR Roundtable Breakfast on


Alternatives to Violence


Our Speakers

Ray Rios and Tom Rothschild, both closely involved with the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) will speak about the work of the organization at the February 4th ROUNDTABLE breakfast.

Radames (Ray) Rios, MPS is a Housing Works Program Director, providing education, counseling and support services for individuals and their families touched by HIV/AIDS and substance abuse in inner city New York. He has conducted dozens of Conflict Resolutions Seminars for AVP and has dedicated his life to making a difference with youth, former prisoners and those touched by HIV and AIDS. He currently serves as co-president of AVP-New York.
 
Tom Rothschild is a Quaker in New York City who has been involved for the past several years with AVP. Tom is also a mediator, facilitator and attorney in private practice. For six years, including two and a half as clerk (chair), he was involved with the Quaker Committee for Conflict Transformation, which assisted Quakers in and around New York in resolving conflict in positive and transforming ways.
 
The Alternatives to Violence Project is a grassroots, volunteer program committed to reducing violence in our lives, in our homes, in our schools, in our prisons, in our streets and in our society. Their mission is to empower people to lead nonviolent lives through building a sense of community where people affirm one another and themselves and learn the skills to transform conflicts nonviolently into win-win outcomes. The AVP program was founded and developed from the real life experiences of people inside and outside prison walls. AVP encourages every person's innate power to positively transform him or herself and, in so doing, to begin to transform the world.
 
There is no charge for the breakfast, but you must register in order to attend.
