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, racism, climate crisis, and the epidemic of violence.

To launch this movement, over 230 nonviolent actions took place September 21-27, 2014,  370 actions were held September 20-27, 2015 and over 750 actions were held September 18-25, 2016 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:

  • An international treaty for swift, verifiable action to reverse climate change
