This chapter describes the planning, organization, and key events during the “Beyond Violence” international conference held at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles from May 5–7, 2003. The conference brought together both scholars and religious activists. All the religious activists, nine in number, were asked to describe in several concurrent breakout sessions their work and how their religious tradition motivated them in that work. Their explanations and testimonies added an intensity and realism to the conference that academic exchanges typically lack. Moreover, the frequent exchanges between activists and the scholars helped keep the academics more grounded in reality and the activists more reflective about their work.
