VISION: All Rhode Island students and school personnel are educated in Kingian Nonviolence, giving them the skills to reconcile conflicts, thereby positively impacting all communities in Rhode Island.
MISSION: Our commitment is to ensure that all educators, staff, administrators, and pre-service teachers in Rhode Island have the knowledge and skills to practice, model, and teach Nonviolence conflict reconciliation, thereby improving the climate and culture of our schools. Subsequently, school personnel will educate all students in grades K-12 in the principles and practice of Nonviolence, based on the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (known as Kingian Nonviolence).

We believe that every child deserves to experience the joy of learning in a Nonviolent school environment. We must take steps towards reducing violence by bringing Nonviolence education into classrooms. School staff that is dedicated to practicing Nonviolence can transform the climate (social-emotional) and culture (procedures and policies) of their school, so that it is a place where students feel respected, safe, and loved.
There are many ways for you to be involved in our organization. Please join Nonviolent Schools RI as it brings its mission forward to create the Beloved Community in our schools. Spread the word in your school district and wider community!
