The Catholic Nonviolence Initiative (CNI) was created after the Nonviolence and Just Peace conference held in April 2016 in Rome. In the months since, we have celebrated a number of positive effects, such as Pope Francis' 2017 World Day of Peace message, "Nonviolence: A style of politics for peace." Other concrete actions, events, and dialogue have been ongoing, including dialogue with the Vatican. This webinar will provide an update on some particular accomplishments and concrete next steps to maintain energy around the CNI and to offer practical examples of action we can take to help move this forward in different social spheres.
