“No matter how often you fall from grace, what matters most is how many times you get up.”

Can you Imagine a Community That is Free of Violence and Supports Our Young Leaders?
Our Young Leaders are living on the margins of unthinkable health disparities, violence, and
mental health trauma. For the last five years, we have created a program of violence prevention called Young Leaders for Peace (YLP). We understand that a holistic approach to healing elevates our participants to become change agents for peace.
You can help our vision of peace become a reality by supporting us on Giving Tuesday 2023.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. This year Giving Tuesday falls on November 28th, and we invite you to join hands with us in making a difference. Our community, including all of you, faces daily trials, but it's important to embrace our emotions and struggles. With this in mind, we'd like to introduce you to the Woodlawn Restorative Justice Hub and shed light on the services we offer.
Our theme for Giving Tuesday is
Embracing Our Humanity
This theme is a reflection of the trauma and drama that our community, especially our young leaders, encounter daily. Life presents us with challenges, obstacles, and opportunities, and even on our best days, our emotions can take us by surprise. We want you to know that it's okay not to be okay every minute of the day.
