Principled nonviolence means to integrate nonviolence as a way of life. Practitioners like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr, Mahatma Gandhi and others trained their minds to guide their actions. During conflict, the focus is to transform self and other to create truly sustainable, long term solutions.

 

Nonviolence Now is a global project to collect and share stories of nonviolence in action. The project introduces the reality of peacemaking worldwide, educating human beings from every walk of life on nonviolence as a deeply principled way to live and as a powerful sustainable strategy for social and political change.

 

The project was made possible by a media grant from the Newman's Own Foundation and PVBLIC Foundation and was designed by a team that includes representatives from the MK Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence in Rochester, NY and the Metta Center for Nonviolence in Petaluma, CA. Since launching at the United Nations on October 2nd, Nonviolence Now has reached over 1.4 million people, its ads securing a clickrate over twice the industry standard.
