The Campaign for a
Nonviolent Future

In our 20 years of building peace side-by-side with local communities, Nonviolent Peaceforce has witnessed the incredible power of nonviolence, community strength, and human resilience. But our survival requires a radical shift in the way we do things. Unarmed civilian protection (UCP) is built on nonviolence, re-connection, and a shared humanity - antidotes to our current crises. Violent events around the world continue to demand dramatic new investments in unarmed civilian protection. Join us to meet this demand and change the world.

Invest in the Future of Nonviolence

NP’s approach to unarmed civilian protection must become widespread to move away from militarized and violent approaches to conflict - to help change the course of history. Your gift makes the deep investments in NP necessary to accelerate our work.

Gifts to the campaign will fund:
Expansions to new protection projects around the world, including in the United States and Ukraine
The Good Practices project, which strengthens networks of UCP practitioners and advances the work of UCP around the world
Key advocacy, fundraising, and human resources staff positions and initiatives

Sustain Our Growth

At Nonviolent Peaceforce we have doubled our budget in six short years. But it will take much more than our current budget of $24 million to reverse the global resort to war and violence. Your gift means we can invest in the core functions of our organization that make possible exponential growth in our programs.

Honor Mel Duncan

Not only is a gift to the Campaign for a Nonviolent Future an investment in the growth of peace around the world, it is also a gift in honor of Mel Duncan. True to Mel, he wishes any celebration of his retirement to further sustain the work of Nonviolent Peaceforce. When you give to the campaign we will share with Mel that a gift has been made in his honor.
