Do you have an issue that you care about but don’t know how to make your idea a reality in your community?

David LaMotte, an international peacemaker and conflict resolution consultant, will present a workshop designed to provide a framework for social change and tools for people committed to working for the common good. The workshop will focus on the dynamics of social change and a how to effect change in ways large and small.

“Changing the World 101″ will run from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, March 10, in the Fellowship Hall at Davis Community Church, 421 D St. in downtown Davis. The event is free and open to the public.

LaMotte is an award-winning songwriter, speaker, author and activist. He suspended his music career at its peak in 2008 to accept a Rotary World Peace Fellowship to obtain a master’s degree in international studies, peace and conflict resolution at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia.

He sprinkles his presentation with illustrations based on his work on sustainable development in southern India, library and school projects in Guatemala and interfaith understanding in North Carolina. He also chairs the American Friends Service Committee Nobel Peace Prize Nominating Committee.

LaMotte does not advocate for particular positions. Rather, he provides listeners with tools to discern their concerns and how to get started working for the good of the community.

LaMotte also will appear in concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 9, at Carmichael Presbyterian Church, 6545 Marconi Ave. in Carmichael. The concert is also free.
