One People - Many Voices

The people most impacted by violence are also most often left out of decision- making and planning. They hold a wealth of the very perspectives we need.

EDUCATING OURSELVES

Violence issues are complex – there is always an answer that is clear, simple and wrong. Strive to understand the systems and the ways we can work together for collective impact.

TAKING ACTION MAKING CHANGE

We all have a role in creating the world we want. We are the ones we have been waiting for. Speak truth to power in a way that can be heard.
