Our organization Race for Peace Committee would like to make Pittsburgh residents aware of our efforts throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania. The Race for Peace Committee is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed in 2016 to enrich the lives of people through programs, resources, activities, and events, for the family that help us reach an understanding between law enforcement and the communities they serve. The main goals are having ongoing and continuous dialogue with communities and the police; mentoring youth; working with police and seniors; developing incentive programs to help promote peace; annually visiting prisons; ending violence and bringing peace to all communities; creating peace and harmonious relations between police and members of communities; and promoting excellence in police officer training. The vision for the committee is to educate about, circumvent and eradicate racism, violence and discrimination globally. The mission for Race for Peace is to revitalize the community through enrichment and outreach programs in every community and to maintain a collective voice and sharing of ideas—creating an atmosphere of peace that encourages good citizenship. The committee strives to create enthusiasm in community members—seeing through their eyes, understanding their needs and delivering more than they expect. It does this by delivering reachable goals and solutions that support peace through the community. For more information visit website raceforpeace.org and Facebook page @RFPCSocialMedia.
