Making a difference in the lives of our youth and community.

 

    About    

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.
