Our Vision

Imagine a world with dignity, justice, and peace for all.
A world with the tools to challenge the spiral of war, poverty and environmental devastation. And a world where we apply these tools to our own lives as well as our larger society. Our mission is to foster a just and peaceful world through nonviolence education, community-building, and action.

Pace e Bene is bringing that world into being one person, one group, one organization at a time.

Pace e Bene’s vision is rooted in the spiritually grounded practice of active nonviolence. For Pace e Bene, nonviolence is an effective principle for social change – and a powerful way of life. For two decades Pace e Bene’s unique approach has been transforming lives and reaching people around the globe. Since its founding in 1989, over 30,000 people have taken 700 Pace e Bene workshops to gain tools for more healthy relationships and to create a new society.

Pace e Bene has offices and associates in Los Angeles, Oakland, Chicago, New England, Montreal, Australia and a growing number of partners and trainers in the US and around the world.
Together we work with individuals, organizations, and movements to strengthen their efforts to abolish war, protect human rights, end poverty, challenge injustice, heal the planet and to meet today’s profound spiritual task: to build a more just, peaceful and nonviolent world

Together we work with individuals, organizations, and
movements to strengthen their efforts to end war, protect human rights, challenge injustice, and to meet today’s profound spiritual task: to build a more just and peaceful world.
