The Resource Center for Nonviolence promotes the practice of nonviolence in personal and social change to create a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. Our goal is to equip people with the tools to organize a just and peaceful world through nonviolence education, community building, and action.
Active nonviolence education is the heart and soul of the Resource Center for Nonviolence. RCNV is dedicated to promoting the principles and actions of nonviolence created by Rosa Parks, Dolores Huerta, Martin Luther King, Mohandas Gandhi, and millions of people all over the world. We realize the importance of a place and community, of local work that is also national and international in scope.
Resource Center for Nonviolence staff members Sarah Durant Smith, Drew Glover, and Peter Klotz-Chamberlin bring a variety of experience and commitment to build relationships with companion organizations and individuals. Drew and Sarah recently completed training in Kingian Nonviolence. All three are enthusiastic to lead nonviolent action trainings in RCNV and in your organizations.
