Just like the movements we cover, Waging Nonviolence is a grassroots-funded operation. Right now we need to raise $10,000 by August 15. Make a donation or become a sustaining member today and select from one of our many gifts on offer. Thanks to a very generous donor, the first $1,000 we receive will be matched.
All contributions to Waging Nonviolence are tax-deductible in the United States.
