Case study: Statewide Peace Network

Political activism in a Midwestern state had seen a significant increase since the beginning of the second Gulf War. However, activists continually found themselves working at cross purposes, and seeing collaborative opportunities after the fact.

Insight Unlimited designed and facilitated a one-day meeting of 120 peace activists from across the state. This meeting was the founding of a state-wide network of peace activism, where no such affiliation previously existed. Insight Unlimited developed the meeting structure and focused the agenda, coordinated and trained a team of facilitators to manage small groups during the meeting, and assisted in developing the new organization’s governing body.

The result was a vibrant, active network that continues to affect peace activism throughout the state.

"We talk a lot about collaboration. This was collaboration through action."
—Hyacinth Douglas Bailey, Board member, Connecticut After School Network
