End Violence Together! September, 2016

 

CNV-Poster-17x11-Blue-2016

More and more people have come to realize that war, poverty, racism domestic violence, climate destruction and the epidemic of violence in all its forms are not separate occurrences or events but rather they are interrelated dimensions of an ever expanding culture of violence.

Campaign Nonviolence is a national movement to mainstream nonviolence across our country and throughout the world. During the week of Sept 18-25, 2016 there will be over 400 public actions across the country to demonstrate support for nonviolence toward ourselves, our communities, our planet and our world.

The End Violence Together Rally & March will be held on September 17th, 2016 from 1–4 PM at West Market Square in Bangor.
