Voices for Peace: Nonviolent Strategies for Change

Civic Voices

Voices for Peace provides a collection of resources for exploring the power of nonviolent strategies to effect political change. Civic Voices students from around the world have recorded the stories of activists who used peaceful means to advance rights and freedoms. Their voices have been assembled into a comparative guide for assessing the effectiveness of various forms of civic engagement. The website also has synthesizing activities so students can see how a range of strategies is required to form a successful social movement.

The Voices for Peace teacher’s guide contains suggestions on how to use the online resources and printable classroom handouts.
