Teaching Nonviolence on Chicago’s West Side
Leaders of the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago, in the Seminar Room

"Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people.” That was the vision of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. On the 90th anniversary of King’s birth, leaders of the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago will discuss how they apply King’s principles and practices of nonviolence as they seek to reduce violence and homicides on Chicago’s West Side and build a more safe, peaceful, just community—what Dr. King called “the Beloved Community.”
