2016 CAMPAIGN NONVIOLENCE NC WEEK
This will be the second year of Campaign Nonviolence NC Week. Various faith and community organizations in the area began to work in collaboration in 2015 to build relationships and to promote peace, economic justice, environmental healing, and effective nonviolent solutions that support a just, peaceful and sustainable world.
Throughout the week, Campaign Nonviolence NC will hold prayer vigils and have programs on issues such as Islamophobia, racism and the environmental impact of war. On September 21st, they will observe the International Day of Peace with a noon vigil in downtown Raleigh after a press conference. There will be a Festival on Saturday, September 24th. After the festival, the week will conclude with a Walk for Values. The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness and encourage everyone to abide by the Human Values of Truth, Love, Right Conduct, Peace and Nonviolence in their daily living.
This movement to build a community that stresses nonviolence in the North Carolina Triangle includes Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and surrounding towns. Already three towns have signed a Proclamation claiming September 17-24th Campaign Nonviolence NC Week.Get Directions via Google Maps
