The Urban Peace Movement Mission:
The mission of UPM is to transform the culture and conditions that lead to urban violence. We build the leadership of communities hit hardest by street violence through fostering non-traditional leaders who are the key the ending this crisis. Through community organizing, youth leadership development, and “culture change” events, UPM empowers young people to overcome internalized oppression and work towards Justice and Social Transformation.
We will do this through:
- transformational leadership work;
- events to “Silence The Violence”;
- helping young people spread the message of urban peace.
