Support the CNI

You make the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative possible!

Together we are building a movement, shining a light on the path to active nonviolence. Through prayer, action, research, and advocacy the CNI is building peace within families and communities, nationally and around the world. Join us – everything helps!

  • Through prayer, individually and in community. Please include the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative in your prayers and the intercessions of your community.
  • Through action, advocacy and education. We offer opportunities to study, learn, and meet. This is a great way to connect with other practitioners of active nonviolence, grow the movement, and learn more about why the world needs the CNI. Enjoy our resources, then share them with your friends, church and community leaders.
  • Through financial contributions, every gift generously helps lead the world away from violence toward peace and nonviolence.

We welcome financial support for the building up of nonviolence and just peace through Pax Christi International.
