HATE CANNOT DRIVE OUT HATE 
ONLY LOVE CAN DO THAT.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to end the cycle of violence in Chicago.

OUR STRATEGIC VISION

Guided by Dr. King’s principles, practices, and teachings of nonviolence, we connect to individuals at highest risk of shooting or being shot and offer conflict mediation, victim advocacy, case management, and nonviolence training.

 

These methods help us work to reduce shootings, guide people involved in violence through their journey away from it, empower and nurture communities in the aftermath of violence, and mediate positive interactions between law enforcement and the communities they serve.

OUR APPROACH

Our approach to ending gun violence is rooted in the principles of nonviolence, hyper-local, trauma-informed, and restorative.

PRINCIPLES OF NONVIOLENCE

Everything we do draws from Dr. King’s principles of nonviolence, which state that violence is learned, cyclical, and systemic. So we’re here to unlearn violence, break the cycle, and change the system.
