Civil Disobedience & NonViolent Action

"Nonviolent resistance ... is based on the conviction that the universe is on the side of justice.  Consequently, the believer in nonviolence has deep faith in the future.

This faith is another reason why the nonviolent resister can accept suffering without retaliation. For he knows that in his struggle for justice he has cosmic companionship."
(Martin Luther King)

NonViolent Action - What is it for us? 

 We have held up the ideal that people willing to demonstrate: Faith, Love, and Personal Sacrifice can be the means of effective social change. More specifically, that Parents can promote Family Law reform by demonstrating: 
1) Faith in a loving God, 
2) Love for their children, former spouses, and other "brothers and sisters", and 
3) Willingness to make Personal Sacrifice, 

NonViolent Action allows you to demonstrate through "unambiguous physical action" the depth of your Faith and belief in your "cause." It is a positive demonstration of love given at sometimes tremendous personal cost.
