The above vision statement, "Raise consciousness of nonviolence to make war and violence obsolete," was created by the "Co-Creating Peace" group during the Friday discussion at last years conference. As a seed for further discussion, here is the group's summary of their continued discussion on Saturday afternoon, which forms a kind of mission statement for those working toward peace through nonviolent means.
