The mission of the Institute for Nonviolence Chicago is to replace the cycle of violence using the principles, practices and teachings of nonviolence.
Through outreach, mediation, support, and nonviolence trainings, we engage
strategies to interrupt and replace the cycle of violence:
Reduce community shootings and homicides (especially retaliatory violence).
Reduce recidivism among groups at highest risk of violence.
Strengthen positive supports for violence-involved young people.
Heal and empower the community during the aftermath of violence.
Transform relationships between law enforcement and communities they serve.
