Join Campaign Nonviolence Sept 19-25

Campaign Nonviolence is a long-term movement to build a culture of peace by mainstreaming active nonviolence—and by joining with people, organizations, and movements everywhere in the long-term nonviolent struggle to abolish war, end poverty, reverse climate change, and challenge all violence.
Build a culture of peace, mainstream nonviolence!
Campaign Nonviolence invites us to:
  • Practice nonviolence toward ourselves, toward all others, and toward a world longing for peace, economic justice, environmental healing, and effective nonviolent solutions
  • Explore, study, and unleash the principles and methods of nonviolence in our lives, our communities, and our societies
  • Connect the dots and join forces in the long-term struggle to abolish  war, end poverty, reverse the climate crisis, and take a stand against all violence, including the structural violence of racism, sexism, homophobia, economic inequality, and all forms of oppression, and
  • Discover and deepen the power of nonviolence, including the vision and tools for nonviolent change that Mohandas Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and many other people and movements have activated for social and personal transformation.
Campaign Nonviolence was launched with 240 public actions in all 50 US states September 21-27, 2014.  This year the CNV Week of Actions featured 370 marches, rallies, demonstrations, vigils and other events in every US state and in nine countries. See news and pictures from the September 20-27, 2015 mobilization here!
To develop this week of actions, Campaign Nonviolence organized in every state in the country, led skill-building trainings across the nation, completed national speaking tours, established nonviolence study groups nationwide, and was endorsed by over 200 national and local organizations.
Now, we are taking the next steps for 2016. See the full details for 2016 by clicking here, then start working to build the campaign in your region with our campaign tools below.
