“Rivera Sun lives, breathes, and shares knowledge and insights of extraordinary depth in the complex world of nonviolent movement strategy, tactics, analysis, and campaign planning. My students flocked to her every time she made an appearance at Portland State University and they demand her return again and again. She helped produce a new generation of young leaders with strong analytical skills with her unique approach to activating hearts, minds and informed imaginations.” —Dr. Tom Hastings, Coordinator, Conflict Resolution BA/BS degree programs, Portland State University
