Inspiring Story of
Dow Gordon

Future Hope's Next Step Program teaches Non-Violent Communication. 

The following film, Words that Liberate demonstrates the power of this practice.

Words that Liberate is a groundbreaking film that takes us through the inspiring story of Dow Gordon, a man who found NVC during his 12 years in prison and went on to become a CNVC Certified Trainer. This powerful film transports us to a prison environment filled with men convicted of acts of violence — who are practicing NVC!
