Campaign Nonviolence Goals

The Goal of Campaign Nonviolence arrow

Campaign Nonviolence’s long-term goal is to build a culture of peace and nonviolence free from war, poverty, climate crisis, and the epidemic of violence.

To launch this movement, over 230 nonviolent actions took place September 21-27, 2014 and 370 actions September 20-27, 2015 in cities and states across the US and beyond taking a stand against all violence and calling for concrete first steps toward peace, economic justice, healing the earth, and mainstreaming active nonviolence. These first steps include:

  • Ending the military drone program
  • Establishing a $15 minimum wage for all
