Nonviolence Chicago

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.

Kingian Nonviolence is a philosophy and methodology that provides the knowledge, skills, and motivation necessary for people to pursue peaceful strategies for solving personal and community problems. This approach is critical if the epidemic of violence is to be eradicated. Often mistaken for being simply the opposite of violence, Nonviolence is a systematic framework of both conceptual principles and pragmatic strategies to reduce violence and positive peace. 

Through the teachings of Dr. King, we infuse high doses of nonviolence through community members and role models to change the prevalence and status quo of violence.
