The World Movement for Nonviolence "was founded by Bawa Jain in 1998 to raise awareness of the critical importance of practicing peacefulness in today's world. Its goal is to prevent violence in every form by promoting the use of diplomatic means for resolving conflict. Bawa Jain received an inspired dictation from his spiritual father, His Holiness Acharya Sushil Kumarji Maharaj, one of this century's international peace leader.

"The World Movement for Nonviolence has forged partnerships and alliances with individuals and organizations in over 140 cities across America and more than 60 countries in the belief that a united effort will strengthen the commitment toward a more peaceful world." [1]

They endorse the work of a group called Nonviolent Peaceforce.
