Dear Friend of the CT Center for Nonviolence,

We hope that this letter finds you and your family well and thriving!

The Connecticut Center for Nonviolence (CTCN), now in its 15th year, is working daily to ensure that people have skills to manage conflict without resorting to violence. Violence and its ugly partner, injustice, continues to deplete our communities, the country and the world; yet we at CTCN consistently build a steady stream of Kingian Nonviolence training sessions and classes, reflective practices and community engagement events.

CT Center for Nonviolence on the ground:

We are in partnerships with local and national organizations, creating a culture of Kingian Nonviolence within schools, police departments and in community groups and organizations of all sizes. The work of CTCN fosters healing of racial disparities and the grave injustices that harm the health of Americans throughout Connecticut and beyond.

Our work touches a range of people from all ages, economic status, professions and positions. Weekly we serve young people who have been severely traumatized by the weight of poverty, systemic racism and the aftermath and continuation of Covid 19.
