Urban Peace Institute

Blog Posts tagged "Urban Peace Institute"

Building on 15 years of success as a program of Advancement Project, Urban Peace Institute launched as an independent organization in August 2015. Following the events in Ferguson and many more locations across the country, we’ve heard a growing call for action to transform the way police interact with communities of color and to strengthen the movement to achieve safety and peace for all. We believe that safety is a human right and are working to implement this call to action. As a new entity, Urban Peace Institute – with its expertise and impact in the fields of relationship-based policing, violence intervention, and policy advocacy to end mass incarceration – will continue to contribute to the national movement.
