Spiritually-Based Change

Pace e Bene works with organizations and movements cultivating spiritually-based nonviolent change

Franciscan Action Network

FAN and Pace e Bene coordinate a national training initiative with Franciscan communities across the US. In regional workshops, teams are trained using a Peacemaking Study Program to deepen the vision of peacemaking and to strengthen their ability to advocate for concrete policy changes for environmental sustainability, justice, and peace.

Episcopal Peace Fellowship

This national organization of Episcopalian peacemakers hosts nonviolence trainings and takes action for justice and peace. EPF adapted and integrated Pace e Bene’s training program into its work. Pace e Bene has led many trainings for EPF, including 2008 trainings in Haiti and with Native American Episcopalians at the Winter Talk Gathering in Minnesota.
