Making a difference in the lives of our youth and community.
We Push for Peace is a nonprofit organization that was started by Trahern Pollard to be a resource and advocate to those in the inner city. On a broader scale, our mission is in the name of the organization “We Push for Peace”. When there is an injustice in our community that is seen, we need to be able to step up, lead the way and help facilitate the change that is needed.
On May 25, 2020, a man by the name of George Floyd, died, in the hands of the Minneapolis police department. We as a community, we as human beings, cannot un-see the horrific images. However, what we can do, is peacefully, go after justice, accountability and the proper change that is needed in our cities, community, society as a whole.
Please check out Instagram for some of our work in the community as well as our photo section.
We had a fantastic turnout at our Back to School Giveaway event at Cub Foods (Broadway location) on 8/23/20. It was a wonderful day bringing the community together and taking care of each other!
I have had the honor and privilege to speak and take part in a number of rallies at the MN State Capital recently. Specifically, a Youth Rally for Equality, Social Justice, and Peace and a Walk for Justice rally in which the message was simple "Let's clean our backyard before dealing with the front." Both were beautiful events and I was honored to speak and be apart.
I was able to take part and be a guest on a wonderful podcast called We Mentor Monday's!

Having the opportunity to speak my truth, share my passion for creating assistance for all in the community, along with much needed change is what gives me great joy. Working with our young people, our future leaders, who will make a difference in this world inspires me tremendously. If you are in need of a speaker, with the same message I bring, please email or call me to arrange.
We are a resource to the community. Our services range from holding job fairs; to assisting with resume writing; to offering resources to child support issues; to offering GED help and resources; and to assisting with food and household needs.
We are committed to and continue to work with young men and woman on gang prevention and violence.
