Nonviolent Wilmington is a project of the Movement for a Culture of Peace (MCP), a broad-based coalition of faith, nonprofit, and community groups formed in response to rising violence in Delaware. An annual March for a Culture of Peace has been held since 2014, most recently in partnership with 302 Guns Down, a grassroots anti-violence campaign.
With dozens of partner organizations, MCP sponsored public forums and peace activities in Wilmington neighborhoods affected by violence. In 2016, the Movement created Peace Week Delaware to advocate for nonviolent solutions to Delaware’s high rate of violence and other justice issues. The fourth annual Peace Week Delaware will be held from Sept. 21–29, 2019.
Nonviolent Wilmington organizers are reaching out to promote this vision, teach nonviolence, and inspire people at every level in our city to work together for a new nonviolent community and future.
