Campaign Nonviolence is a new, long-term movement to mainstream active nonviolence --making nonviolence an obvious and natural way of living and of fostering a world that works for all.
How? By studying the principles and methods of nonviolence. By sharing the stories of nonviolence. By striving to live nonviolence. By building the means of nonviolence. And by taking nonviolence public: in our neighborhoods, schools, religious communities, organizations, cities, and societies.
In 2014, Campaign Nonviolence will take nonviolent action -- nonviolent civil resistance, rallies, marches, interfaith services, or other forms of public peaceful witness -- September 21--27, 2014 in hundreds of cities, Congressional districts, and Washington, DC. Launched on the International Day of Peace, Campaign Nonviolence Week 2014 will call for concrete policy shifts toward reversing the climate crisis, ending poverty and abolishing war, with a first focus on banning military drones.
Beyond 2014 Campaign Nonviolence will continue to build this people power movement for peace, economic justice, healing the planet, and for the well-being of all.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel peace laureate Mairead Maguire, and Civil Rights leader Vincent Harding have endorsed Campaign Nonviolence.
