Acknowledging PuddleDancer Press and Responding to Racism

PuddleDancer Press (PDP) published the first edition of Marshall Rosenberg’s book, Nonviolent Communication, in 1999 and since then has published many more books dealing with Nonviolent Communication. PDP has also donated many NVC books for use in prisons and for people who could not otherwise afford them. PDP is, in my view, one of the most effective agents for spreading NVC and I am deeply grateful for what it offers.

PDP publishes a free monthly e-newsletter. Material from the current newsletter seems to me to be especially relevant at this time. It includes an essay addressing racial justice by CNVC trainer Roxy Manning, Ph.D. entitled “How can Nonviolent Communication be helpful in these transformative times?” If you would like to read the newsletter or sign up to receive it each month, you can do so at PDP’s website:
