Black Lives Matter. Life is sacred.

A message in support of Black Lives Matter from the Metta Center

Dear Metta community, 

Black lives matter — because life is sacred in its entirety and its beautiful diversity. 

Like all people who have a sense that this is truth, we are striving as individuals and as an organization to bring this vision to life in our own consciousness, words and actions. We regard this as the essence of nonviolent change. 

In all humility, we invite you to make any suggestions or offer any ideas or support to help us in this effort and ongoing commitment. 

With heartfelt solidarity, 
Michael Nagler, Stephanie Van Hook,
and the Metta Center for Nonviolence’s Board of Directors.

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?

Waging Nonviolence partners with other organizations and publishes their work.
