We Are the Global Majority



Global Majority is an international organization committed to

the promotion of non-violent conflict management

through education, training, and advocacy.



Our vision is to create an international movement of advocates and practitioners,

working at home and abroad, with the skills and resources

to promote non-violent conflict resolution.



In 2004, Global Majority’s founding president Bill Monning (now a California state senator) convened a small gathering of students and graduates of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies to share his vision: to create an international network of conflict resolution practitioners to teach conflict resolution skills and advocate for the non-violent resolution of global disputes. His vision was remarkably ambitious. Yet the need for such a network was critical, and a small team of dedicated individuals began organizing.

Since then, the Global Majority team —  a team of diverse, passionate and committed volunteers, students, donors and staff members — has accomplished so much towards Bill’s vision. We are comprised of Staff, a Board of Directors, and an International Advisory Board.
