What is Kingian Nonviolence?

Kingian Nonviolence is a philosophy and methodology that provides the knowledge, skills, and motivation necessary for people to pursue peaceful strategies for solving personal and community problems. This approach is critical if the epidemic of violence is to be eradicated. Often mistaken for being simply the absence of, or opposite of violence, Nonviolence is, rather, a systematic framework of both conceptual principles and pragmatic strategies to reduce violence and promote positive peace at the personal, community, national, and global levels.

In recent history, nonviolence has come to be recognized as a significant alternative for students, communities, and whole societies to effectively deal with the conditions they face locally, nationally, and internationally.  During the 20th century, the successful social movements of Gandhi in India and Martin Luther King in the United States led to the public's realization of completely new dimensions of nonviolent conflict reconciliation.  This approach does not depend on major material or technological instruments, but utilizes skills and methodologies that people already possess.
