AT THE CENTER OF NONVIOLENCE
STANDS THE PRINCIPLE OF LOVE.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
WE BELIEVE THAT BRUTALITY AND FORCE ARE NOT SOLUTIONS TO THIS PROBLEM.
We see it over and over again. People trying to fight violence with violence, hatred, inaction, or despair. And we’ve seen, over and over again, that these don’t work. They only lead to more pain, more hurt, and more suffering.
So we’re here to fight violence peacefully and lovingly. That’s why we provide street outreach and critical programs and services to help strengthen victims and their families, build up communities, and teach nonviolence throughout Chicago.
Everything we do is based on the practices and principles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We believe, as he said, that “unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”
So if you need support recovering from trauma, if you want to make a change in your life and actions, or if you’re interested in joining the fight against violence—no matter your past or present, we’re here to walk alongside you in your future.
