About Us

Our Mission

The mission of the Nonviolence Institute is to teach, by word and example, the principles and practices of nonviolence, and to foster a community that addresses potentially violent situations with nonviolent solutions.

Our Vision


We work every day to build a Beloved Healthy Community reflective of the actions and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  We serve as a leader in the nonviolence movement, serving as a model for other organizations across the country and training people from all walks of life in the principles and practices of nonviolence.  We envision the Institute becoming an international center of excellence for the nonviolence movement.
