Non violence institute to open new headquarters

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held Monday to celebrate the completion of a new home for the Institute for the Study and Practice of Non violence.

Rhode Island's entire congressional delegation will be on hand for the grand opening of the new quarters of the Institute for the Study and Practice of nonviolence.

Located in the former convent of St,. Michael's Church, the Institute's new home is the result of nine years of planning and fundraising efforts. The main floor will be devoted to youth performance, studio spaces and a computer training room -- services the organization has been unable to offer at its current location.

The Inistitute is dedicated to fostering a community that addresses potentially violent situations with nonviolent solutions.
