The Nonviolence Festival has been celebrating diversity, peace, and social justice since 2005, making this year’s festival the 12th annual Day in the Park celebration. In a world where we struggle against violence and fear, the Nonviolence Festival focuses on positive ways we can engage with those around us, working for peace and positive relationships. They define Nonviolence as ‘treating others the way you wish to be treated’ and when that principle is applied to our relationships at home, workplace and the world, we build the kind of world in which we want to live.
