The friends of CfP in the Asheville area have been active in teaching Nonviolent communication, and brought the first Nonviolent Communication trainings to Combatants for Peace in 2016. Our group has Israeli-Americans and Palestinian-Americans, and have been active in sharing their stories locally in their community. We first brought the film, Disturbing the Peace, to Asheville in 2017, and then brought Combatants for Peace speakers to Asheville in the Winter of 2019. We also launched a three-part series to engage our community in the Spring of 2019: we screened the joint Memorial Ceremony, followed by a screening of Disturbing the Peace and Two-Sided Story. We also sent two of our local leaders to a CfP speakers training.
