Mission Statement

Strides for Peace deploys strategic capital amongst a variety of local agencies and programs that strive for the common goal of reducing gun violence in the City of Chicago.


Strides for Peace was formed in 2014 in reaction to the shockingly high incidence of gun violence that takes place throughout the City of Chicago each year. Its purpose is to identify and financially assist local sister organizations that have achieved demonstrable success in reducing gun violence via community development, health and wellness initiatives, or youth-oriented programs. Strides for Peace is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

By deploying capital to those already making a difference in their communities, we can increase the scale of positive impact and make real progress in reducing gun violence in Chicago.

We are on a mission and need your help. We hope you’ll join us, because every stride counts.
