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.
