Imagine Nonviolent Los Angeles. Nonviolent New York City. Or Nonviolent Kabul. What would it take to foster a nonviolent city where you live? Campaign Nonviolence calls on communities everywhere to imagine what their nonviolent city would entail; to identify what would be involved in achieving this; and to take concrete steps toward this long-term goal. The Nonviolent Cities Project is a great platform for connecting the dots and nurturing a culture of peace and nonviolence. Click here to learn more!
Nonviolence education is key to long-term change by spreading the tools of nonviolent transformation and by training both advocates for change and the larger society. Working with training organizations—and long-time nonviolence trainers—we will identify and organize at least 1,000 trainings and workshops for nonviolent change over the next year. We call on every local group to host, organize or lead a nonviolence training in 2016. Click here to learn more!
Connect the dots between issues and movements to create people power for change! Meet with other organizers and members of organizations, campaigns and movements in your city, area or region at least twice for relationship building and to explore the ways to mutually support, connect, synergize and maximize the impact of your collective efforts.

To build the capacity of this movement, Campaign Nonviolence offers numerous resources to support your organizing for nonviolent change, including new books, workshops, social media, and many tools on the CNV website for mainstreaming nonviolence, connecting the dots between issues and movements, building your campaign, and taking training.
