Sojourn to the Past students will travel to Columbus Thursday to be with Gov. John Kasich as he signs the bill creating Nonviolence Week in Ohio.

Last fall, Sojourn to the Past students, who are from Youngstown high schools, asked state Sen. Joe Schiavoni of Canfield, D-33rd, to introduce a bill in the Ohio Senate creating the observance in Ohio.

Each spring for the past seven years, Youngstown high school students have participated in the Sojourn to the Past experience to the Civil Rights sites in the South. The students learn the lessons of the Civil Rights Movement such as justice, nonviolence, forgiveness, tolerance and compassion. Before completing the trip, the students develop an action plan to implement when they return home. Since 2009, the students have focused on nonviolence.
