The Peace Building Program works locally and nationally to highlight the human and economic cost of war and militarism through exhibits, actions and events.  Current projects include the Humanize Not Militarize poster exhibit and Youth Film Festival (, research and storytelling on the costs of policing and police militarization in Chicago & nationally, and narrative change work challenging Islamophobia.  We regularly work with youth interns to build their skills and support their leadership in local efforts to challenge state violence.
