February 19: Takin' It To the Streets

Moses Canales, Worship Leader
The current state of non-violent, mass direct action in America. Where do we go from here? What is the origin and history of non-violent protest in America and historically how effective is it? What role, if any, do faith and spirituality have in the non-violent pursuit of social justice? These questions I will approach with a brief history of non-violent resolution of conflicts, using readings from civil rights leaders, and personal reflections and experiences of those who have struggled against social injustice and tyranny.

Moses Canales is the son of a Mexican Baptist minister. He has been an immigration and criminal defense attorney, a teacher and counselor for the developmentally disabled, and has worked with health advocacy groups. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from U.C. Berkeley with highest honors and holds a Juris Doctor from UC Hastings College of Law. He is an enrolled seminarian at the Pacific School of Religion for his Masters in Divinity and Master of Theology. Mr. Canales is the director of the PSR student-led worship program called "The Rising."
