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.

To us, nonviolence is about much more than the absence of war--it requires struggling for equality, justice and dignity for all people.
