Baltimore Peacebuilders come together as people of faith who are committed to active nonviolence as a transforming way of life and as a means of radical change to bring about justice and the Beloved Community. We network, teach and promote nonviolence in action to achieve this vision.
OUR VISION: To be an incubator of the Beloved Community as the framework for the future we can build together.
OUR MISSION: To use the principles and practices of nonviolence to foster trusting and transformative relationships and build social and economic equity.
- We offer training in the principles and practices of Kingian nonviolence through public presentations, a speaker’s bureau, and workshops.
- We support learning the will and skills to engage in courageous conversations across differences that lie beneath conflicts.
- We seek to foster networks of people engaged in nonviolent activism in Baltimore and to nurture relationships with peacebuilding allies in the Baltimore area and beyond.
On November 20, 2023, the Baltimore Peacebuilders organized a talk by George Lakey. George is an 85-year-old nonviolent activist, trainer, and organizer.

Suppose you had the revolution you are talking and dreaming about. Suppose your side had won, and you had the kind of society that you wanted. How would you live, you personally, in that society? Start living that way now.
