In 2014, they expanded the social media outreach of the Metta Center for Nonviolence, and currently they serve Pace e Bene’s rapidly growing Campaign Nonviolence project, working with their organizers, staff, endorsing groups, and participants to develop social media skills, support and uplift the movement, and build sincere relationships through the medium of social media.
