The Urban Peace Institute is a fiscally sponsored project, and is seeking to become an independent organization. As we make this transition, UPI will be formalizing its Advisory Board into a formal Board of Directors, and recruiting additional members to join our Board of Directors. A formal board recruitment plan will be instrumental in helping our organization assess our leadership needs and begin recruitment plans.
This project will help UPI define its upcoming strategies and needed recruitment tools to enhance its Board of Directors. This enhanced leadership will help UPI be more successful in reaching its overall goals of ending gun and gang violence, and well as promoting safety in underserved communities.
UPI develops and implements policy and systems solutions to reduce violence, achieve safety and improve community health.
UPI creates safe and healthy communities by developing tailored solutions for neighborhoods effected by violence. Our Urban Peace Academy has trained over 3,500 brave peacemakers working to reduce gun and gang violence. violence across the country.
