Illinois for a World BEYOND War and Chicago Area Peace Action are excited to sponsor this educational event:

Nonviolent Action, Unarmed Civilian Protection: A Way Forward to Justice & Peace

Featuring Charles Johnson, Organizing Director with Chicago Area Peace Action
When: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Monday, January 15, 2024, 7:00-8:30 pm Central Time

There is another way, a better way, and a more effective way. The nonviolent way can achieve results, resolve conflicts, reach understanding, and help to heal.

In this session, participants will learn about the nonviolent alternative known as Unarmed Civilian Protection, a way to provide safety and security, and achieve peace. We will be introduced to the techniques, success stories, and economies of Unarmed Civilian Protection-- a practice which is transforming models of safety in U.S. communities and in conflicts around the world. We will also be able to participate in role-playing situations, and receive resources to learn more!

Charles Johnson is a co-founding member of Nonviolent Peaceforce's Chicago chapter. He has received certification in Unarmed Civilian Protection (UCP) studies through the UN/Merrimack College, and has trained in UCP with Nonviolent Peaceforce, DC Peace Team, Meta Peace Team, and others.
