The Resource Center for Nonviolence Santa Cruz, founded in 1976, is peace and social justice organization dedicated to promoting the principles of nonviolent social change and enhancing the quality of life and human dignity. Our work takes place here at home in California, throughout the United States, and around the world. The Resource Center for Nonviolence offers a wide-range of educational programs in the history, theory, methodology, and current practice of nonviolence as a force for personal and social change. The Resource Center has developed a variety of formats to explore the meaning of nonviolence and its prospects in shaping our daily lives and our work for social change. Located in Santa Cruz, California, the Resource Center has an international focus that extends as wide as the world is round. Our programs focus on places as far as the Middle East, and as near as Southern Mexico and our own backyard.
