When you put Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s principles and steps of nonviolence into action it makes a difference. It reduces violence, establishes trust, and restores community.

 

We’ve been focusing our efforts in some of Chicago’s neighborhoods most affected by violence—Austin, Back of the Yards and West Garfield Park. And it’s getting measurable results, changing lives, and giving people hope again.

PRACTICING NONVIOLENCE

IS BRINGING HOPE BACK TO

NEIGHBORHOODS ACROSS CHICAGO.

HOW WE'VE BEEN A PART OF ENDING THE VIOLENCE IN CHICAGO IN 2019:

conflict mediations were conducted

hours of service were provided

to 202 outreach participants

hours of service were given to 260 victim services participants

contacts were made with key violence-involved individuals

hours of service were provided to 174 case management participants

WE ARE COMMITTED TO HAVING A MEANINGFUL IMPACT IN OUR COMMUNITIES.

We take our work seriously, so at the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago we partner with the University of Chicago Crime Lab and sociologists Andy Papachristos and David Hureau to gather data about our programs and practices. Ending violence is too important for us to be ineffective, so we want to find out what works and what doesn’t so we can better ourselves and be as helpful as possible in our communities.

WE'D LOVE TO
