 Nonviolent Activist Support Fund 

The Nonviolence International global network provides a limited humanitarian support to civil society activists who are penalized for their nonviolent actions in support of social change. The fund helps support families of jailed activists, defray legal costs, and provide other material support. Currently the Activist Support Fund provides limited financial relief to nonviolent activists in Syria and Bahrain. It will soon extend this relief to Palestine.

Nonviolent Observation

Provides financial support for political process observers for strikes, demonstrations, and elections. Legal observers and documentarians have had a violence limiting effect, especially in situations where the news media may be absent. Outside observers have demonstrated an ability to limit abuse of civil society activists by their presence due to the fact that such abuse will now have a witness.  This special fund of Nonviolence International Canada also supplies financial support for nonviolent security strategies to protect human rights defenders.
