Join the Thunderclap for 1000 Trainings!

Posted by Ryan Hall

The 1000 Nonviolence Trainings Project is a new initiative of Campaign Nonviolence and other organizations to train tens of thousands of people in the methods of nonviolent change and to build the capacity of the long-term social movements needed to create a more just, peaceful and sustainable world.

This effort seeks to organize, identify, and publicize at least one thousand nonviolence trainings and workshops in 2016.  A growing number of organizations and trainers are partnering to make this year of nonviolence training a reality.

The 1000 Nonviolence Trainings Project will encompass a spectrum of trainings for nonviolent change including introductory nonviolence trainings, nonviolence social change, communicating nonviolently,  nonviolent conflict transformation, spiritually-based nonviolence and training for trainers.

Transforming the massive global challenges we face today—including perennial war, racism, poverty, environmental destruction and all forms of violence and injustice—requires powerful movements for change. The 1000 Nonviolence Trainings Project exists to support the preparation, organization and collaboration to build and sustain these movements.

On April 4, 2016, we will officially launch this project with a sustained social media campaign, including a powerful global Thunderclap. Signup above or click here to help us spread the word!
