Season for Peace and Nonviolence

January 30th through April 4th

PCSL is joining cities across the globe to host the 2021 Season for Peace and Nonviolence. The purpose of the annual 64-day campaign is to elevate awareness of the philosophy of attaining peace through nonviolent action as demonstrated by legendary leaders Mohandas K. Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. PCSL’s initiative features the foundational program, 64 Ways to Practice Nonviolence.
