On Monday, April 9, DePaul’s Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies program hosted a peace summit in collaboration with Perspectives Middle Academy in an effort to build skills, foster relationships and develop plans to end violence across Chicago. More than 150 students and teachers from Perspectives Middle Academy gathered in the Lincoln Park Student Center, and participated in workshops and conversations centered on nonviolence and peace in Chicago. Pace e Bene’s Ken Butigan was the faculty advisor to five of the Peace, Justice, and Conflict Studies students who played a key role in organizing this event.
