Campaign Nonviolence is a long-term movement to build a culture of peace by mainstreaming active nonviolence—and by joining with people, organizations, and movements everywhere in the long-term nonviolent struggle to abolish war, end poverty and racism, reverse climate change, and challenge all violence.
Learn about Campaign Nonviolence. Take the CNV Pledge. Join with others to spread active nonviolence. See the CNV Call for Nonviolent Action–and join people in hundreds of cities this year — September 16-24, 2017 during the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions — to take action connecting the dots between war, poverty, racism and the climate crisis and calling for concrete policy shifts for peace, economic justice, and environmental healing.
