Poster - Never Doubt

Never doubt
that a small group of
thoughtful, committed individuals
can change the world.
it's the only thing
that ever has.


These thoughtful, committed individuals have not only shaped the attitudes and institutions of our world, they have each acted with a commitment to nonviolence: seeking to convert the hearts and minds of their opponents rather than using coercive force.

Each was a part of a small group that valued truth and justice before personal accomplishment or monetary gain.

They each inspire us with courage in the face of violence and oppression.

May each of them also challenge us to commit our lives to making justice and peace a reality for all people.
