Author Pummy Kaur finds ’64 ways for 64 days’ to promote non-violence

Pummy Kaur, a Vancouver-based author and social justice activist, has just released a new book entitled ‘A Season of Non-Violence: 64 Ways for 64 Days’. Steven Staples, President of the Rideau Institute, has written a foreward to the book. In it, Steven writes:

The book is available for purchase by clicking this link.
