Nonviolence Project/Nvp

Black Lives Matter Georgia is committed to nonviolent action across America. Blmg draws from the experiences of those who have suffered at the hands of violence…

We ask: what must our response be? And our answer- as tentative, grappling, searching, and seeking as it may be is that it falls upon us as citizens living in the communities across America to utilize all nonviolent means available to stand up against violence in any form – to engage the youths in schools and the community, most definitely; We must protest against violence by peaceful marches and protest against violence.

We must also move from protest to active nonviolent programming. Nonviolence cannot be a single-day event- it must be a commitment we make and act upon every day of our lives. What might this active nonviolent program look like? And how might we act in solidarity with community leaders all across America? By working with our children, teaching them the Nonviolent way of resolving conflicts.
