At URI, civil rights veteran advocates nonviolence training in wake of Orlando killings

As the nation debates gun control and other measures as a possible means to prevent more atrocities such as that which claimed the lives of 49 on Sunday in Orlando, Fla., a veteran of the civil rights movement is advocating an additional approach.

Nonviolence training, says Bernard Lafayette Jr., a minister, educator and writer who participated in the Selma marches, could be part of the answer.
