People Engaged in Active Community Efforts (PEACE)
PEACE is a powerful, congregation-based, grassroots, community organization committed to democratic principles and values of justice and fairness. PEACE seeks to build the power of low-income people for a greater degree of justice.
Government officials along with corporate CEO’s make decisions that affect the lives of hundreds of thousands of people living in West Palm County, Florida. PEACE is striving to build power among low-income people, so that they too can have a seat at the bargaining table when these decisions are made. PEACE has fought and won on a broad set of issues like education reform, improving low-income housing, and dozens of others.
