SPC's Statement on Nonviolence

Mon, Jul 7, 2003

The Syracuse Peace Council is committed to nonviolence as an operating principle for our organization and as a central element of our vision for the world we work to create. We embrace the active nonviolence of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. to confront the many injustices facing our world. To us, nonviolence is about much more than the absence of war--it requires struggling for equality, justice and dignity for all people.
