CNV Week of Actions Begins This Weekend

Posted by Ryan Hall
09.11.17

This coming weekend begins the fourth Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions, September 16-24, 2017.  Since last spring we have been doing outreach to people around the nation to encourage them to take action with us as the world celebrates the International Day of Peace on Sept. 21.

The CNV Week of Actions is not only a time to celebrate peace, but also a time to connect the dots among some of the most important issues of our day, ending war, poverty, racism and environmental destruction, while challenging our culture to begin utilizing the tools of nonviolence.

This year we are seeing more actions and events than ever!  When we started in 2014, only 240 events took place, but now we’re over 1000 marches, rallies and prayers for peace.  Be sure to find an event in your area and to get involved.  See the full list of actions here.

Thank you to Evan Girard of Vermont for putting together the wonderful video above to help get the word out about Campaign Nonviolence!
