The Chicago Peace Fellows program connects and empowers a select group of local leaders who represent neighborhoods across the West and South sides of Chicago. The Peace Fellows come together as a community of practice, learning and working together to promote peace at a grassroots level.

Chicago Peace Fellows learn from one another, their local communities and the Global Alumni Network. This expansive circle of global grassroots leaders supports each other in their efforts and ensures a constantly developing conversation around how to address violence in our communities.
