CEPAD-WN is established on the belief and conviction that a just, peaceful, and democratic societies can be achieved by people who are conscious and aware of their civil and political rights. CEPAD-WN is an organization dedicated to the cause of NonViolence. To CEPAD-WN, this means commitment to justice without the use of force that destroys or causes injury to an enemy or his/her properties. We believe a movement built on NonViolence should critically analyze injustice and work to liberate both the oppressed and the oppressor.
