Thank you to DJ Chandler from Sagehorse Publishing for this great video. Check out her YouTube channel Peacebuilder’s Series.
Honoring our ‘Stop the Violence’ Movement of the late 80’s and shifting our movement building strategy towards a BluePrint for Peace, the Bring the Peace Movement will address the public health crisis of incessant violence in our communities using the power and influence of hip hop.
Goals for this movement are:
~ Identify violence defined by local communities
~ Amplify partnerships, programming and policy advocacy to eliminate violence
~ Produce an Educational Awareness Campaign
Building on the success of the Super Bowl Halftime show where hip-hop culture cemented its influence, The Peace Alliance Community Peacebuilding Lead, JoHanna “J” Thompson, MPA is building out the Bring the Peace Movement (BtP) as a national call to action to transform trauma-inducing moments of violence into a healing-abled movement, amplifying local communities working to bring the peace through partnership, programming and policy advocacy.

Healing Justice Village
We need your help! Darlene McCay’s son Dante Taylor died in custody after being beaten and left in solitary confinement without medical assistance or contact with his mother almost 5 years ago. The DoJ convened a grand jury over a year ago, but it’s been on pause for months. Darlene deserves accountability and closure. On October 6th, 2022, the statute of limitations will be up. Demand the Department of Justice reconvene the grand jury and indict the officers responsible for Dante’s death – we have less than one month!
