Campaign Nonviolence NC invites everyone to connect the dots between individuals, campaigns and movements that have often been working separately for peace, economic equality, and eco-justice. In the lead up to the U.N. International Day of Peace on September 21, a series of events has been planned to help build a community that stresses nonviolence in the Triangle.
