Pace e Bene director Ken Butigan took part in the Peace March Against Gun Violence on Friday organized by Fr. Michael Pfleger and Saint Sabina’s Church in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago, where many youth have been killed by gun violence.  They had a nice Campaign Nonviolence contingent — including Sr. Janet Ryan, Doug Kaspar, Concetta Smart and Suellen Semekowski, a long-time nonviolence trainer trained by Pace e Bene!
