Troubled by the scarcity of material from the nonviolent peace movement on the World Wide Web, three individuals are dedicating their skills to "help bring the powerful message of nonviolence onto society's latest soapbox."

Barbara Hirshkowitz and Martin Kelly, editors at New Society Press; and Kenneth Sutton, assistant editor of the Quaker periodical Friends Journal, have set up The Nonviolence Web (NV-Web) to offer free, professionally designed pages on the web to national organizations dedicated to social change through nonviolent action. The organization notes that as publishing costs continue to soar, NV-Web offers a historic opportunity for activists to circumvent many of the economic pressures of print. For more information, visit their homepage at: http://www.nonviolence.org/~nvweb. Or contact NV-Web, 4709 Windsor, Philadelphia, PA 19143; (215) 382-6543; e-mail: nvweb@nonviolence.org.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
