Nonviolence: The Love that Does Justice

Nonviolence

is a force for transformation, truth, justice, and the well-being of all that is neither violent nor passive.

It

is transforming power (Alternatives to Violence), cooperative power (Jonathan Schell),

love

in action (Dorothy Day

), and

the love that does justice (Martin Luther King, Jr.),

It

is an active form of resistance to systems of privilege and domination, a philosophy for liberation, an approach to movement building, a tactic of non-cooperation, and a practice we can employ to transform the world (War Resisters League).
