Models of Nonviolence

I find this list of “models of nonviolence” to be a helpful introduction to some ways that people can think about and practice nonviolence. Oddly, it is missing two key figure: Gandhi and MLK Jr (although they are represented in the “Links” section). However, there are some stellar examples of lived ethics in each person they identify– and I salute them for including three women!

See the “Models of N-V” tab at their website:

The Nonviolence Festival itself is based in Waterloo, and is a group of volunteers that work together to plan and promote events that “raise awareness about the importance of nonviolence.” To see their activities, go to the link above.
