|A Season for Nonviolence, Long Beach: January 30 - April 4|
On January 9, 2007, Long Beach City Council adopted a resolution officially recognizing and supporting A Season for Nonviolence.
A Season for Nonviolence is a national 64-day educational, media, and grassroots campaign dedicated to demonstrating that nonviolence is a powerful way to heal, transform, and empower lives and communities. Inspired by the 50th and 30th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It runs from January 30 to April 4, honoring their vision for an empowered, nonviolent world.
A Season for Nonviolence has also been recognized in hundreds of cities in United States and all over the world. Hundreds more organizations, religious, business, arts, and learning institutions have elected themselves as official co-sponsors of A Season for Nonviolence initiative.
It is our hope that each of the religious, spiritual and civic leaders and organizations in Long Beach embrace A Season for Nonviolence and bring their own events and activities to their members as a means of encouraging them to build a community that honors the dignity and worth of every human being. The City of Long Beach and its residents, businesses and visitors should aspire to and deserve nothing less in our communities.
For your convenience, we have provided forms on this page that will help you organize and participate in A Season for Nonviolence. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Human Dignity at 562-570-6730.
