Project Description

The Community Healing Initiative offers a transformational approach to social change using the principles and practices of nonviolence and restorative justice. A series of two trainings designed for young leaders (but not excluding others) will empower participants with the skills and resilience needed to address even the most challenging issues and their root causes.

From gun violence to sexual abuse, racism to environmental degradation and everything in-between, there is so much harm that is not being addressed in a healing, transformative way. Starting with a pilot project in Boulder, CO in the fall of 2018, this Initiative puts a practical and holistic approach to community peacemaking directly into the hands of the people.
