Benefitting: Institute for Nonviolence Chicago
Event Fundraiser: Strides For Peace - 2018 Race Against Gun Violence
Please help us raise vital funds to support the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago! Nonviolence Chicago is working to replace the cycle of violence using the principles, practices and teachings of Kingian Nonviolence. To accomplish this, we engage with the highest risk individuals and the communities in which they live to prevent and intervene in violence. Nonviolence Chicago provides outreach and mediation in the community and a local school; victim services to those injured or those whose family members have been killed or injured by violence; case management to those trying to move out of a violent lifestyle; Nonviolence training in Cook County Jail, schools, churches, etc. to build the Beloved Community; and community outreach to build and enhance community partnerships and investment.
About Institute for Nonviolence Chicago
Through the teachings of Dr. King, Nonviolence Chicago infuses high doses of nonviolence through community members and role models to change the prevalence and status quo of violence. Using a collaborative community-based approach founded on the theories and practices of nonviolence and relationship building, Nonviolence Chicago works with the highest risk ("in-risk") individuals and the communities in which they live.
