About Parents for Peace and Justice
We're parents, siblings, family friends and neighbors seeking justice for those taken away from us through violence; but most importantly we're fighting for peace in our streets. We're based in Humboldt Park, but we're advocates for anyone affected by violence in Chicago.
Our mission is to draw attention to unsolved murder cases involving untimely passings of our loved ones due to gun and gang violence. We honor loved ones lost to violence through vigils with the hope that it brings answers and closure to the victims families. We also work on violence-prevention programs with at-risk youth, and partner with other non-profits working toward the same goals.
Our vision is to have a safe Chicago so our kids can enjoy their childhood without fear of getting shot. We envision a peaceful society that brings justice for those who have passed due to violence.
For information on upcoming events, please follow our Facebook page. We're a grassroots, volunteer-run organization, founded in 2013. We're always looking for volunteers for help with things like:

What real Chicagoans Say needs to Happen to Stop Violence.
Violence is a complex problem. We believe no one or group holds all the answers and in order to
stop violence, we must attack it from many angles. While politicians are suggesting solutions, we
believe there's too much discussion going on without our voices at the table - the residence of
Chicago and the people already working toward peace.
In order to hear the peoples' voices, we created a survey called "Chicago: How Can We Stop
the Violence?", which ran February 1st, 2017 through February 21st, 2017.
