Mission and Purpose

Our Mission:

In providing this event, it is our mission to educate and empower Memphis communities through an annual signature event that is specifically geared towards peace, community empowerment, education and living a health lifestyle.

Our Approach to Achieving a Peaceful Community:

Through extensive research, the Block Party for Peace team has come to understand the issues facing our communities today. 
Most crimes are committed with the intent of some form of economic gain, i.e. illegal drug sales, burglary, etc.  With this in mind, we have decided to take a progressive approach that cuts to the core of crime and violence in our city through job creation and access, workforce development, higher education and healthy living.  In improving one's quality of life, we believe that we will decrease the desire for one to commit crime. 

The best way to stop a bullet is a JOB!
