TED Talk by Ken Butigan

What does a world without violence look like? Pace e Bene’s Ken Butigan tackles this increasingly important question in his TEDxDePaulUniversity talk, “Mainstreaming Nonviolence.”  Watch the video below or click here.

Butigan teaches in the Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies Program at DePaul University. His doctoral work explores nonviolence in five religious traditions. For three decades, he has been a change-maker in a series of justice and peace movements, including campaigns focused on homelessness, nuclear weapons and the U.S. war in Iraq. Since 1990, he has worked with Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service, a nonprofit aimed at mainstreaming peacemaking, where he has led workshops and trainings for thousands of people. In 2014, he helped launch Pace e Bene’s “Campaign Nonviolence,” a long-term movement to foster a culture free from war, poverty, racism, environmental destruction and the epidemic of violence. He has published a series of books, including “Pilgrimage Through a Burning World: Spiritual Practice and Nonviolent Protest at the Nevada Test Site.” He lives in Chicago with his spouse Cynthia Okayama Dopke and their daughter Leah.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
