Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Non-Violence: Peace Begins With Me, is a movement about making the voice of non-violence louder than the voice of violence. Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Desmond Tutu, were all inspired by non-violence and led movements of social change rooted in this principle. Non-violence is about more than not physically harming people. It's saying, peace begins with me. When I'm stressed, angry or aggressive, that's what I spread. However, when I am taught self-awareness, meditative tools and human values; then I can spread nonviolence. In 2013, NONVIO is much needed in Philadelphia. We are training organizers who would like to join this real movement for change . A number of teams are available for those who have interest. Let's bring a wave of Non-Violence to the City of Brotherly Love!
In Philadelphia, our work includes the efforts a diverse group of individuals including teachers, financial professionals, medical professionals and concerned citizens. We partner with both individuals and organizations to promote non-violence. We offer workshops in schools, universities, corporations, non-profits, the general community as well as open partnerships. We are working to spread nonviolence through public events and hope to bring together modern advocates of this movement in a town hall forum.
