Our Impact

United in Peace regularly promotes peace by producing resolution initiatives to the City of Houston, Unity and Peace Walks, and community summits.

The objectives of the “Unity and Peace Walks” are to:

  1. Galvanize the community to speak out against gun violence
  2. Show support for families of victims of violence and murder
  3. Promote a recently established “conflict resolution hotline” (citizens may call for intervention when they see conflict escalating in their community)
  4. Encourage men to stand up to make their own communities a safe place to live

United in Peace begin with the premise that the solution to gang related violence lies with the community and not necessarily with the police.
