Resource Center for Nonviolence PROGRAMS

See RCNV Information Brochure

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 Drew Glover and Peter Klotz-Chamberlin bring a variety of experience and commitment to build relationships with companion organizations and individuals. Drew is a certified Kingian Nonviolence trainer.  They are enthusiastic about leading nonviolent action trainings for RCNV and for your organizations.
