Become a member

A Dream ForeclosedBecoming a member of Waging Nonviolence is more than an ordinary subscription. The fee you pay doesn’t simply buy you access to our content; it’s an investment in making possible the people-powered content that we distribute far and wide, on the web and in print. Your subscription will help us continue to pay our writers, which, unlike many online publications, we have made a top priority and is only fair given the time and risk that is often required to tell the stories they pursue.

Members, also, are not just consumers of what we produce and curate; you’ll have an opportunity to participate in discussions with WNV staff and other members about the future direction of the site. We invite you to join this community today at as generous a level as you’re able. All memberships are on a yearly or bi-yearly basis.

If you are already a member and would like to upgrade, simply renew your membership at a higher level and we will cancel your previous one.

Because of shipping costs, gifts can be sent to U.S.-based members only at this time.
