Institute for Nonviolence: Strengthening Peace in Rhode Island

See video


The Institute for the Study & Practice of Nonviolence has been helping to build a state of peace in Rhode Island – reducing gang violence, coping with conflict in prison and assisting victims of crime.

Students at URI’s Harrington School of Communication and Media have been capturing some of the Institute’s work on film, including this interview with Executive Director Teny Gross.

If you're a Brown student (with interests in urban studies, fiscal issues at the state level, and peace / non-violence) wanting to learn more, you should visit the Institute’s new YouTube channel ( Better yet, you can drop in on a showcase of Institute media produced by the URI Media and Civic Engagement class this semester. It’s at the downtown Providence campus on Wednesday, May 1, 6-8pm (details are included in this invitation.)
