Peacemaker Training Institute



Together, we have the capacity, ability, and resilience to prevent gun violence. Together, we are peacemakers. 

About the 2018 Organizing Summit + Peacemaker Institute


The 2018 Peacemaker Organizing Summit is the second annual national convening of grassroots organizers, stakeholders, advocates and allies to support ending gun violence in communities of color. The Organizing Summit will be on June 21st from 10am-6pm in Los Angeles, CA. There is no cost to the training, but everyone must register. This summit will have a specific focus on youth-led organizing, so we encourage young organizers to attend. If you are under the age of 18, you will have to have a guardian in attendance, or be part of a organization that can provide guardianship. 

The Peacemaker Training Institute (PTI) will serve as a training connection hub to provide a roadmap of community for organizers and allies working within or interested in the gun violence prevention movement and public health space.

The PTI will launch at the 2nd Annual Organizing Summit. The PTI is meant to shift the narrative of gun violence prevention to center voices of color and create space for collaboration, community, and learning through leadership development, strategic training and curriculum. PTI will travel across the country throughout the rest of 2018 hosting trainings and events with partners across the country, including the Black and Brown Gun Violence Consortium. 

Sign up for the Peacemaker Organizing Summit today- space is limited!
