About the Campaign

The Community Justice Reform Coalition (CJRC) and the PICO Live Free Campaign have joined with partners from across the country to launch the Peacemaker Partnership Campaign -- an educational action campaign to reduce gun violence in communities of color.

The Peacemaker Partnership is a national campaign to reduce homicides by firearms, decrease mass incarceration, and center communities of color in the fight to end gun violence in America.

We are committed to ending structural discrimination and the mass criminalization of people of color by mobilizing all Americans to be “peacemakers” to reduce the number of gun-related shootings and homicides, decrease the number of individuals incarcerated and increase opportunity for those caught in these deadly cycles.

Changing the Conversation.

CJRC and the Live Free Campaign have taken steps to help change the conversation around gun violence by:

  • Educating and partnering with stakeholders, including: faith leaders, city and county officials, law enforcement, civic teach leaders, and advocates who support local efforts to implement violence prevention strategies

  • Educating and training new leaders to support local organizing around violence prevention

  • Training officers in principled policing, a new training program developed with the CA Department of Justice to improve police/community relationships.
  • Engaging millennials and seasoned organizers each year from communities of color in skills building training and education of violence prevention solutions.

  • Facilitating in person educational training sessions focused on policy and local organizing efforts to end gun violence.

  • Certifying community leaders each year as principled policing trainers, providing overall volunteer teaching time with training sessions.

  • Committing to a decrease in officer-involved shootings and use of force incidents in cities with peacemaker strategies after proper of implementation.
