ABOUT US

The Chicago PEACE Plan was born out of a desire to bring positive, collaborative and sustainable change to Chicago neighborhoods in need of revitalization.

 

We believe that the obstacle to change in communities is not a lack of resources, but a lack of relationship between community stakeholders. As such, we aim to be a bridge for ongoing conversation, education and transformation in neighborhoods by investing in five main areas:

P – PARTNERSHIP

E – EDUCATION

A – ARTS

C – COMPASSION

E – ENTERPRISE

PARTNERSHIP

We collaborate with neighborhood leaders, individuals and organizations who are working effectively to bring positive change to communities.

EDUCATION

Mentorship, role models and education are necessary to create the skills and imagination for a new generation of leaders committed to thriving communities.

ARTS

We recognize the importance of artistic and creative expression in influencing individual and shared visions of a preferred future.

COMPASSION

We aim to meet people at their place of need and to give them access to resources required for practical, immediate help.

ENTERPRISE

Sustainable change in communities will require the creation and nurture of business and entrepreneurial opportunities within the community.
