The Power of Nonviolent Change

Thanks Martha Ann
If you see injustice and say nothing, you have taken the side of the oppressor.”-- Desmund Tutu
Creative Nonviolence transforms our lives and our world by unleashing our capacity for connection, compassion, and cooperation to:
  • Break the cycle of violence
  • Free ourselves and others from destructive fear
  • Struggle actively for change
  • Create a more even playing field
  • Celebrate differences while affirming the interdependence of all beings, and
  • Discover constructive and sustainable ways of life.
Pace e Bene  is a network originally founded by Father Louis Vitale, OFM, and other Franciscans in California to promote education, resources, and action for nonviolent change.  Consider the “Daily Practices for Nonviolent Living”   Since its founding in 1989, over 25,000 people in North and South America, Africa, and other places, have taken 600 Pace e Bene workshops to gain tools for more healthy relationships and to create a new society.  If you feel saddened by the news of violence around us, consider using the Pace e Bene website which is like a school for learning inner and outer peace
