Bringing Nonviolence to DePaul

Posted by Erin Bechtol
01.08.18

Pace e Bene’s Ken Butigan has recently been featured on the DePaul Newsline for his work promoting nonviolence around the globe. As a senior professional lecturer of peace, justice, and conflict studies at DePaul, Ken has the opportunity to teach nonviolent fundamentals in the University in addition to the work he does for Campaign Nonviolence.

In this profile, Ken shares how he began getting involved with nonviolence and how it led him to get involved with spreading Jesus’s message of love and peace at a higher level. He goes on to share what he hopes to accomplish in the future:

A papal encyclical on nonviolence would have powerful reach. It would then be a matter of inviting the Church to reintegrate Jesus’ nonviolence at every level – dioceses, parishes, religious orders, and even universities like DePaul. The centrality of Jesus’ teaching was loving our enemies and living more just and peaceful lives. Re-committing to nonviolence in a clear and practical way will help equip people in the Church and the larger world with the vision and toolbox for justice and peace.
