Dear NVC Community,

I write this post in my role as Executive Director of the Center for Nonviolent Communication. It is a call to action from me personally. It doesn't necessarily represent anyone else's views and I am unashamedly exploiting my position by sharing this message. I hope you will read it through and support my plea....if not please tell me, directly to me, what about this message does not work for you? For as long as I can remember, black and minority communities have been asking for support in meeting needs for equality and fairness. They have asked over and over again, both loudly and quietly, and mostly patiently. They ask because, if we are to call ourselves a just society, there is a power imbalance to address. Read more...

Dear NVC Community,

Each day we become closer to the realities of how the COVID-19 virus is set to affect our daily lives; for how long, we just don't know. We are hearing about cancelled training and events as people are advised not to gather, and we wonder about the balance between uncertainty and powerlessness alongside change and opportunity. As we watch events unfold, and while we work to give you some concrete information, the staff at CNVC want you to know that we are thinking of our precious network and holding you in our hearts. Maria, Danielle, Alison, Teresa, Matthew, and Glenda.

The Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) is a global nonprofit organization founded by Marshall Rosenberg, Ph.D. We are dedicated to sharing Nonviolent Communication (NVC) around the world, and, to that end, we offer International Intensive Trainings and we certify individuals as trainers.

NVC is about connecting with ourselves and others from the heart. It’s about seeing the humanity in all of us. It’s about recognizing our commonalities and differences and finding ways to make life wonderful for all of us.
