Who We Are
Filmmakers Steve York and Miriam Zimmerman and nonviolent conflict experts Peter Ackerman and Jack DuVall, make up the creative team behind A Force More Powerful and Bringing Down A Dictator. They began collaborating on projects concerning nonviolent action in 1996.
The tremendous response to their work revealed a great, worldwide need for further education on strategic nonviolent conflict. To meet this need, Peter Ackerman and Jack DuVall founded the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict which works to encourage the use of nonviolent civilian-based strategies for defending and extending democratic self-rule and human rights throughout the world.
