 What can you say YES to when you say NO to war? 

Nonviolent Peaceforce (NP) is a federation of Member Organizations from around the world endorsed by 8 Nobel Peace Laureates.  In partnership with local groups, unarmed Nonviolent Peaceforce Field Team members apply proven strategies to protect human rights, deter violence, and help create space for local peacemakers to carry out their work.

Building upon the work of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and other unarmed peaceworkers, the vision of NP is to create a large-scale nonviolent peacekeeping force through the development of the pilot project, public education, training, and advocacy.  Current deployments are in Myanmar, Mindanao and South Sudan.
