A growing number of groups in Chicago are working together to coordinate a series of events and trainings about the power of nonviolence to effect social change  We're hoping these resources will help people all over the world prepare for the NATO Summit being held in Chicago, May 20-21, 2012.

On this page you will find a calendar of events in Chicago, resources for further study, and contact information for groups who are willing to facilitate nonviolence trainings as well as to provide programs in the theory of nonviolence, history of nonviolent campaigns, and other aspects of the power of nonviolence to effect social change.
