THE CAMPAIGN NONVIOLENCE ACTION WEEK WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!
We invite people and organizations in the U.S. and worldwide to take action during CNV Action Week around the International Day of Peace, September 21. This is our fifth year organizing actions and we are hoping to mobilize over 2000 actions, marches and events across the U.S. covering all fifty states and beyond to take a strong stand for justice, disarmament and peace. Please start now to organize marches, rallies, vigils and events in your community, and let us know what you are planning to do by filling out the form on the right and we’ll add your information to the bottom of this page soon. Once you have your action details you’ll be able to post them here.
We urge everyone to have a planning day, to send out press releases and to send us updates. Also, remember to connect the dots by taking to the streets against racism, war, poverty and environmental destruction, and also for the coming of a new culture of nonviolence, with justice and peace.
In addition, we invite everyone to gather at the end of the week in Washington, D.C. for a two day Campaign Nonviolence National Convergence. We will gather Friday night, Sept. 21 at the Festival Center (1640 Columbia Rd., NW, Washington, D.C.) for an evening of reflection and sharing, and then the next morning, Sept. 22, we will gather at 9 a.m. at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Statue near the Lincoln Memorial for a rally, then walk in silence to the White House, where we will engage in nonviolent direct action. Please join us! Learn more here!
