Nonviolence is the Recognition of the Humanity of Others
We named our webinar series, “We Are All Part Of One Another.” This is a line from the great feminist nonviolent activist Barbara Deming. That line is, of course, reflective of an ancient truth that lies at the heart of all the world religions and the scientific understanding of humans as intensely social and interdependent creatures.
We know we can’t harm another human being without harming ourselves.
We can’t allow unjust systems to remain in place oppressing our precious sisters and brothers and call ourselves nonviolent. Instead, nonviolence calls on us to actively pursue justice for all.
