Developing Leaders for Justice & Peace

join hands

Kingian Nonviolence Organizing Support

We develop leaders through Kingian Nonviolence initiatives and campaigns.

Our team of experienced staff and interns offer training and support for leaders and communities working on specific projects for justice and peace, using the discipline of Kingian Nonviolence in solidarity with current movements and accountability to impacted people.

Whether you are trying to change an unjust policy or practice, or transform a beloved community and institutionalize nonviolence throughout its entire fabric, OEP can help.

Training & Consulting for Your Success

We offer a wide range of trainings online or in person, from 1-hour introductions to key concepts, all the way to 2-day core studies for KNV organizers, and 2-week courses for certification of KNV trainers, and other packages in between. We also adapt custom trainings for your specific needs, and offer ongoing accompaniment and consultation for your KNV program.

We envision a world in Beloved Community, liberated from oppression, violence, and war. Our trained cohorts of KNV organizers and teams are leading the way into that world.

The Six Principles of Kingian Nonviolence

  1. Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people.
  2. The Beloved Community is the framework for the future.
  3. Attack forces of evil, not persons doing evil.
  4. Accept suffering without retaliation for the sake of the cause to achieve the goal.
  5. Avoid internal violence of the spirit as well as external physical violence.
  6. The universe is on the side of justice.
