METTA Center for non-violence was co-founded by my friend Professor Michael Nagler who some called “the Berkeley Gandhi”. I think of him as America’s most knowledgeable person of Gandhian thought.
The Metta Center for Nonviolence has special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council at the United Nations. As a 501(c)3 organization, we provide educational resources on the safe and effective use of nonviolence, with the recognition that it’s not about putting the right person in power but awakening the right kind of power in people. We advance a higher image of humankind while empowering people to explore the question: How does nonviolence work, and how can I actively contribute to a happier, more peaceful society?
