    Change the "To Be" verb.

    How would I eliminate the "to be" verb, is, in this brief statement.

    "Nonconformity is not only the failure to conform to _________, but the refusal to ___________, as well."

    The easiest way is to find some other verb that can take the place of "is" and substitute it.
    It is usually something more specific.
    Try to find something more specific.
