About Us

We are the Houston, Texas affiliate of The UN Decade for Building a Culture of Peace and Nonviolence for the Children of the World. The Nobel Laureates remind us that violence is not inevitable. We can offer hope not only to the children of the world, but to all of humanity, by beginning to create and build, a new “Culture of Nonviolence.” The heart of building this new culture is, as the Nobel Laureates call for: “nonviolence be taught at every level in our societies during this decade”. In their six-point “Commitment 2000,” the Nobel Laureates invite us to start with these principles of nonviolence: •Respect Life• Reject Violence •Share With Others •Listen To Understand •Preserve The Planet •Contribute to our Communities
