How our Coalition Leads
Provide a Unified Political Voice Against Violence
The VPC provides a unified political voice for its members, both grassroots and nonprofits, to advocate for community-led solutions to community violence. We believe amplifying the voices of people who experience violence is crucial for breaking the cycle of trauma in our communities.
Creates Systems Change:
The VPC develops relationships across and between government, community groups, and impacted individuals to advocate for community-based, non-policing practices to heal the wounded, restore relationships and address past harms.
Support Member Organizations
From understanding the needs in the streets to the inner workings of city hall, the VPC actively promotes collaboration and information sharing amongst its members. We understand violence prevention is hard work and we're here to support however we can.
