The idea of No Enemy is timeless.

Here is some history of the No Enemy symbol.

Paul Cheatham's senior year as a sociology student at UC Santa Cruz started a few days after the tragedies of September 11, 2001. He was working at Santa Cruz Juvenile Hall and trying to figure out how to encourage peaceful thought and action when the phrase No Enemy came to mind.

Paul offered $100 prize, raised through bake sales, for the creation of a visual image that expressed No Enemy. A powerful image of fists and a bird sent in by Boris was selected to be the Original No Enemy symbol. 144 organic cotton, made in the USA T-shirts were screenprinted with the Original No Enemy symbol and circulated between sociology classes and peace rallies. Eco Goods the local organic general store offered No Enemy clothing shelf space. Inumerable kind souls helped to share the No Enemy symbol around the world.

In July of 2013 The No Enemy organization expanded to provide guidance for people interested in meditation. Click here for more details  http://www.noenemy.org/full-story/contact-us/
