Campaign Nonviolence arrow

Campaign Nonviolence is a long-term movement to build a culture of peace by mainstreaming active nonviolence and by joining the enduring, nonviolent struggle to abolish war, end poverty, reverse climate change, and challenge all violence.  Campaign Nonviolence invites you to practice nonviolence toward yourself, toward all others, and toward the world!

This new campaign’s vision is rooted in an understanding of nonviolence as a force for truth, justice, and the well-being of all that is neither passive nor violent.  As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. put it, nonviolence is “the love that does justice.” It is an orientation that unleashes creativity, connectedness, and compassion. It is a way of life and a means of transforming the world.

In the face of the enormous violence and injustice we face today, the power of active nonviolence is needed now more than ever.  This is why Pace e Bene initiated Campaign Nonviolence—a long-term effort to spread active nonviolence as an obvious and natural way of life and taking action for a world that works for all of us.

At this critical turning point, we are called to mainstream active nonviolence by living nonviolence, studying the principles and methods of nonviolence, sharing the stories of nonviolence, building the means of nonviolence, and taking nonviolence public—in our neighborhoods, schools, religious communities, organizations, cities, and societies.

Sign the Campaign Nonviolence Pledge — and join this new movement to mainstream active nonviolence and to foster a world free from war, poverty and the climate crisis. Then take action with us in  your city or town September 21-27!
