Nonviolence is shaped by principles that guide our actions as we work for change.​

  • Love

From small acts of kindness to mass movements for change, nonviolence moves our care for other people into action.

  • Community

Nonviolence helps us organize our community to refuse to cooperate with injustice. It gives us ways to engage our community in solutions and alternatives.

  • Justice

Nonviolence offers practical and effective tools to achieve justice in a way that breaks the cycle of violence.

  • Courage

It takes courage to stand up for peace and justice. Nonviolence unleashes that courage within us.

Our Mission is to help individuals and communities develop the inner resources and practical skills needed to achieve a nonviolent, sustainable, and just world.
