The feeling that everything is falling apart can be overwhelming. It's tempting to look away from the pain. 

So how do we respond to the violence we see in our neighborhoods and around the world? We won't end violence by just telling people not to use violence. Telling people to be peaceful but not attending to the harm they have experienced is careless.

Nonviolence means being involved in the hard work of making positive change. It's not a matter of advising from a comfortable position.

​If you're ready to go deeper with nonviolent direct action, find an in-person training. There are a number of groups ready to support your community’s continued learning.
