Waging Nonviolence is a platform for leading peace and justice organizations — as well as university research centers — to publish their own independent content. Visit these members’ individual pages below and go here to learn more about this innovative model for movement media. In the coming weeks, we will be adding three more members: War Resisters League and three universities (Rutgers-Newark’s International Institute for Peace and Juniata College’s Baker Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies).
As an interfaith organization, FOR-USA's mission is to organize, train, and grow a diverse movement that welcomes all people of conscience to end structures of violence and war, and create peace through the transformative power of nonviolence.
We provide educational resources on the safe and effective use of nonviolence, with the recognition that it’s not about putting the right person in power but awakening the right kind of power in people. We advance a higher image of humankind while empowering people to explore the question: How does nonviolence work, and how can I actively contribute to a happier, more peaceful society?
Campaign Nonviolence, a project of Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service, is working for a new culture of nonviolence by connecting the issues to end war, poverty, racism and environmental destruction. We organize The Nonviolent Cities Project and the annual Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions.
Founded in 2011, the International Institute for Peace is a UNESCO Category II organization based at Rutgers University, Newark. We are dedicated to the promotion of research and education on peacebuilding and conflict transformation through nonviolent struggle, and the cultivation of a culture of peace.
Resistance Studies is a collaborative effort between academics and activists, or “professors of the street,” that promotes the analysis of and support for nonviolent direct action and civil disobedience around the world. This includes the Resistance Studies Initiative at UMass Amherst, scholars in the Resistance Studies Network and the interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed Journal of Resistance Studies.
