The Catholic Nonviolence Initiative arose out of the April 2016 conference in Rome on the topic of Nonviolence and Just Peace. Many amazing fruits have been born, such as Pope Francis’ 2017 World Day of Peace message on Nonviolence: A Style of Politics for Peace. Other concrete actions, events, and dialogue have also been ongoing, which include activity with the Vatican. This webinar will provide an update on recent accomplishments and offer examples of actions we can take to promote the initiative.
