We can live in a world where people of color aren’t lost to gun violence and incarceration by ensuring that sheriffs, prosecutors, police chiefs, mayors, city council members and county commissioners are held accountable as allies, not obstacles, to reform.
We are building a peacemaking movement led by people of faith and those directly impacted by violence and incarceration. Join us!
A year ago this week, we affirmed our commitment to ending gun violence by launching the Safer Tomorrow Fund, designed to fuel grassroots organizations nationwide working tirelessly toward that very goal.
Following the fatal shooting of rapper, community activist and businessman Ermias Davidson Asghedom, pka Nipsey Hussle, the LIVE FREE gun violence prevention campaign sent condolences to Hussle’s family and announced plans to expedite the recruitment of 1000 faith leaders to become PEACEMAKER congregations.
While hailing the success of the anti-gun movement that has led to Saturday’s March for Our Lives, some activists are urging that that momentum should also be used to tackle gun violence in poor and minority communities.
