TO EMPOWER, INSPIRE and TRAIN CURRENT & FUTURE LEADERS TO IMPROVE THEIR COMMUNITIES LOCALLY, NATIONALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY... FOR THE COMMON GOOD.
The mission of the Institute is to provide a platform for citizens of every walk of life to learn the important principles that underlie nonviolent advocacy. Central to this mission is a push to provide future leaders and “change agents” with opportunities to explore the moral, ethical, and theological imperatives for justice and human rights for all people.
Simply put, our Mission is to change lives for the better, in a real and permanent way.
