“Nonviolence is the greatest power at the disposal of humankind.” — Gandhi

Educators for Nonviolence is brought to you by the Metta Center for Nonviolence. We provide educational resources on the safe and effective use of nonviolence, with the recognition that it’s not about putting the right person in power but awakening the right kind of power in people. We advance a higher image of humankind while empowering people to explore the question: How does nonviolence work, and how can I actively contribute to a happier, more peaceful society?


Wondering how to bring a more peaceful learning environment to your classroom? Seeking creative ideas for teaching nonviolence and peacebuilding?

We’re building an online community for educators at all levels (early childhood through college). Imagine a space for developing skills, sharing resources, and deepening the practice of nonviolence both inside and outside the classroom setting. Interested?
