The Resource Center for Nonviolence has undergone many changes over its 38 years, and in the last 3 years. The founding of Project ReGeneration in August, 2011, the purchase of the new building at 612 Ocean Street in September, 2011, the death of Scott Kennedy in November, 2011, the move into the new building in March, 2012, and subsequent use of the new building by 75 nonprofit and social change groups for events and meetings.
The Center continues its mission of advocating nonviolent social change in all sorts of issues, and of cultivating nonviolent activists. The Center today is a mix of co-founders, and people who have come into the organization throughout its history, and people who have become involved in the past few months.
On May 9, 2014, Joan Baez helped us launch the public phase of our Building for the Future Capital Campaign. Following that great concert, on May 10, 2014 we dedicated our Main Hall to Scott Kennedy. Pictures for both events can be found on our Flickr page here and here! Both events sought to reach out to the community and provide a platform for a very important campaign. Please join us in realizing our goals and transforming the Center from a plain and practical building into a vibrant community center.
