The USF Institute for Nonviolence and Social Justice is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that engages in interdisciplinary research, education, advocacy, creative expression, and multimedia publication to investigate, illuminate, and advance the theory and practice of transformational nonviolence to powerfully confront and overcome injustice and systemic violence and contribute to the just resolution of communal conflict.

The institute’s vision reflects the beloved community embraced by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: a society that has eliminated poverty, hunger and homelessness, racism and racial inequality, anti-semitism and all other forms of religious intolerance or persecution, and militarism and nuclear weapons; a society infused by justice, reconciliation, friendship, love, compassion and goodwill; a society affirming and protecting the inalienable rights belonging to all men, women and children, especially the poorest and most vulnerable; a society in which interpersonal, social, communal and international conflict is resolved by peaceful negotiation and respect for human dignity.
