After a year of preparation, the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions — September 21-27 — has arrived!

Beginning today — Sunday, September 21, The International Day of Peace — nonviolent marches, rallies, vigils, fasts, festivals and many other forms of peaceful, determined action will take place over the next week coast to coast, as well as in American Samoa, Bogota, Colombia, and Kabul, Afghanistan, where the Afghan Peace Volunteers are joining this call for an international culture of peace and nonviolence. Some groups got the action started on Saturday — including in Santa Fe, New Mexico!

These nonviolent actions — which will take place in all 50 states and beyond — will launch a long-term movement for a world free from war, poverty, the climate crisis, and the epidemic of violence.  Over the next year we will strengthen this ongoing movement by continuing to mainstream nonviolence, by connecting the dots between peace, people and the planet, by joining forces, and by striving to practice nonviolence toward ourselves, toward all others, and toward the entire world.

Thank you to everyone everywhere who has made this week — and our future work — possible!

See all actions by state here and by date here!

And if you still would like to submit action details, you can do so here!

Campaign Nonviolence is also a participating organization in the People’s Climate March in New York City on Sunday.  If you are coming to Manhattan for this historic call for swift international action to reverse the climate crisis, join the CNV contingent, and hear CNV’s John Dear speak at the pre-rally!  See details here!
