The world is in need of peace and nonviolence now more than ever. The nature of conflict resulting in violence has dramatically changed in the past century with the development of new technology and weaponry.
According to the United Nations, about one-third of the world’s population - more than 2.5 billion people - live in dangerous environments in countries around the world where incidents involving violent death are high. Today, the great majority of violent conflicts are waged within states with the victims being almost entirely civilians. Women, children, the elderly, the poor, and the disabled are especially vulnerable in these conflicts.
The recognition of the importance of nonviolent action in resolving these conflicts is crucial to protecting the lives of many innocent people around the world.
Since 2014, Nonviolence International New York has worked relentlessly to promote these nonviolent solutions in order to make a safer and more peaceful place for all and to cultivate the next generation of civil society leaders equipped to make this possible.
