Our friends at Campaign Nonviolence Memphis are already causing a stir with their week of actions. CNV Memphis has scheduled ten days packed full of nonviolence demonstrations, trainings, speakers, and more, and have been spreading the news through their local news.

WMC Action 5 News recently interviewed CNV Memphis member Dr. Monica Juma about joining the Nonviolent Cities Project and the plans for the Week of Actions.

“Campaign Nonviolence calls on us to put the word ‘nonviolence’ in front of our cities, hence to proclaim a nonviolent Memphis and to envision and work for this together by connecting communities of faith as well groups working for peace and justice to create together a culture of nonviolence at all levels of our society, free from war, poverty, racism, destruction of the earth, and all other forms of violence,” said Dr. Juma.
