Grow in nonviolence and antiracism

RCNV is a community, a place, and a virtual space to learn and grow in our commitments for a better world. Antiracism and nonviolence are methods of engaged learning and action. We learn from people impacted by racism and imperialism. We learn from people impacted by our actions. We learn from social movements around the world. We learn from the successes and mistakes of our own efforts.  

Book circles, trainings and seminars meet in person and online in small groups with experienced activists, organizers and facilitators. RCNV hosts speakers who have made life commitments to antiracism and nonviolence. We learn from experiences and insights of everybody involved. One participant said recently, “we cannot do this alone.”

Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity, or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world”

RCNV is here to support your action. This website, and our staff, volunteers and programs, are resources for your growth.

Nonviolent and antiracist action may be stopping to listen to impacts and reactions in your body and settling into your presence, it may be confronting a decision maker about racist policy that must be changed–and it may be both.

Explore actions people take around the world for liberation and justice, learn about the power of nonviolent action campaigns, find books, organizations and web links to go deeper into antiracism and nonviolence. 

Then contact us to converse about what you find. See also upcoming programs RCNV offers for community learning.
