Co-Hosts: Indivisible IL9, Stevenson Center on Democracy and the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago

Please join us to hear from a team from the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago as they describe the important work they are doing collaboratively to reduce gun violence. Their services are hyper-locally focused in Austin, West Garfield Park and Back of the Yards, where they engage with those at highest risk of being involved in gun violence and the communities in which they live to prevent and intervene in violence. Nonviolence Chicago provides outreach and mediation; victim support and advocacy; case management; reentry case management; community organizing and Nonviolence training to build the Beloved Community.

As partners in several collaborations across the city to decrease gun violence, including Communities Partnering 4 Peace (CP4P), READI, and the Rapid Reduction initiative between Chicago CRED and CP4P, the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago is uniquely situated as a community-based organization and a big picture leader in this architecture. To learn how you can be an active partner in the Beloved Community, please join us on July 24!
