If Peace Replaced Violence
Embracing Martin Luther King's Beloved Community, the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence (ISPN) cultivates peaceful conflict resolution, particulrarly around group/gang-related violence. ISPN's streetworkers have a positive presence in Providence neighborhoods, and regularly visit hospitals to offer support for victims of violence. In addition, ISPN facilitates nonviolence workshops for everyone in the Providence community, including police officers, students, and inmates.
As a Senior Streetworker in his own neighborhood, Jose Rodriguez shares how he spreads the values of the Institute within the Providence community.
