We are postponing our annual fundraiser, Invest in Peace.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and in order to protect the health and safety of our community, Invest in Peace will be postponed until the fall. The Nonviolence Institute continues to do the critical work of leading the nonviolence movement and serving as a pillar of strength in the community during the most challenging times.
We look forward to sharing our mission and our work with you at Invest in Peace soon. Your support allows our staff to continue to work closely with victims, our streetworkers to monitor and intervene in potentially violent situations, and our message of nonviolence to build a foundation in our community.
Our partners at Amica put together this short documentary to give our Beloved Community a look at who we are, the work we do, and the impact we make. Give it a watch for a glimpse of our lifesaving work.

In 2016, the Nonviolence Institute (then the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence), assembled a group of staff, leaders, clients, and stakeholders to develop a strategic plan for growth and sustainability. The year-long planning process resulted in the formation of six strategic objectives. These objectives are a framework on which we build our services and projects.
Strategic Objectives for Management:
Center of Excellence in Nonviolence (build to be a primary center of thought, research, and practice in the field)
Relationship Management (work toward relationships that are strong with all constituent groups)
Evaluation Capacity (grow, implement, and maintain systems that evaluate performance and impact)
Resource Development (institute a management culture whereby resource development, especially but not solely financial, is the responsibility of all, not just one department or committee)
Continuous Professional Development (grow opportunities for all staff to continuously learn and develop skills as professionals in this field)
Communication Strategy (with intention, communicate the Institute’s story to each of our distinct constituent groups)
