Friends for a Non-Violent World

Friends for a Non-Violent World (FNVW) works with many lead facilitators

and co-facilitators for AVP. Some of our trainers may be responding

individually to this request for information about each trainer. As an

organization, we are not permitted to

divulge the information requested because of confidentiality issues within

the time constraints involved. Four days is not enough time for us to get

all of the information together on our 47 facilitators.
