Vol. XVII, No.2 Winter, 2003



Wishing you a very fine New Year. The world continues to go through many shifts producing a great many developments in areas of our concern. We welcome your thoughts about all that is in progress. 

These pages serve as a networking and dialoguing vehicle between annual meetings. We strongly encourage you to contribute articles (up to 1000 words), news, announcements, comments, queries, responses and art work. It would be very fine if we could develop ongoing discussion from issue to issue.  We especially invite you to send us a brief note about what you are doing, your concerns and queries, relating to nonviolent change, for our "What We Are About" section.

Whenever possible, please make submissions on disk or via e-mail to

Please send writings and art work for Nonviolent Change Journal  to Steve Sachs. Steve puts together a draft of each issue and sends it to Marliee Niehoff and Bob Hotes for Editing. Steve then undertakes e-mailing, printing and snail mailing, and Darling re-edits for internet use and posts the issue on the web (unsigned writings are Steve's).

We are looking for someone who may be able to format our issues in a better way and who might handle our e-mailing (and possibly printing and posting as well). We would welcome their joining in the editing and writing. We welcome additional editors and column writers to cover geographic or topic areas on an ongoing or one time basis.

Communicating about any other Research/Action Team Business can be directed to any of the cochairs or to other members of the Coordinating Committee: Don Cole, Organization Development Institute, 11234 Walnut Ridge Rd., Chesterland, OH 44026 (440)729-7419,, who is coordinating networking among organizations; Tom Strait, (3634 S. Dixie Hwy., Franklin, OH 45005 (513)422-7107), researching computer networking.




We are now able to send you Nonviolent Change Journal via e-mail, and would prefer to shift as much of our readership as possible from printed to e-mail subscription or to view the journal on its website. This will help us cut costs while maintaining what we hope will be improved quality. In addition, doing so will reduce our work load and be kind to the environment. If you would like to switch from a printed to an e-mail subscription, or would like to begin subscribing via e-mail, let Steve Sachs know at It may be that after one more year we will only publish via the internet.
