The No More Violence movement began in 1997 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 1999, the president of the nation, Carlos S. Menem, requested a meeting with the NMV leadership to learn more about the movement and give his support.
In 2001, the Ministry of Education of Buenos Aires gave a proclamation that permitted the NMV material to be used in public schools. Law was passed in the province of Misiones that the material must be taught in public schools. On September 29, 2017, the Senate of Argentina presented the NMV leadership with a certificate of honor on our 20th anniversary.
It is this material today that is being used in Argentina, Venezuela, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile, Ecuador, and the United States. Doors continue to open to share a message of peace. For example, the police academy in Comayagua, Honduras is now using the NMV material to train their cadets and to build relationships with the community.
“It has been a gift from God to know the work all of you have been doing. I feel honored to have been able to spend this time visiting with you. You are an example of the kind of citizens that we need in the nations of the world in the XXI century, so that the encounter of all human beings can be possible. Thank you!
Signed, Gabriela Michetti, Vicepresident of the Nation of Argentina” September 2017
