may appear to be hoping for Utopia, but we need to dream, and we will get

Non-Violence: No Higher Calling is a movement dedicated to making the
voice of non-violence louder. By re-glorifying non-violence and re-instilling
our pride in peace, we can address violence in our communities, our

And so we will reach a Billion Acts of Non-Violence. We are dedicating
ourselves to a peace so profound that it inspires everything we do: from
the games we play, to the words we speak, to the way we relate to
ourselves and our neighbors.

On March 30th this movement will be launched in New York City’s Dag
Hammarskjold Plaza (47th St and 2nd Ave) at 2:00pm by Global
