“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
– Robert F Kennedy
Season of Nonviolence
January 30 – April 4
The season of nonviolence begins at the commemoration of the death of Mohandas Gandhi and ends at the commemoration of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.. These two history-shifting leaders were staunch supporters of resistance through nonviolent means. The Peace Alliance honors them and their deep belief in nonviolence throughout the year, and especially during these days. How will you live your life in a more non-violent way? Join us to find out how.
