Summer of Peace Initiative

Summer of Peace 2010

The goal of the Summer of Peace Initiative is to support the range of work that promotes a summer free of youth violence in Cambridge through bringing people together to connect, collaborate, share information, and build relationships.

This initiative brings together City staff, police, schools, clergy, youth centers, public health staff, people from academic institutions and community activists to identify potential problems and sources of violence in the community, foster collaborations among agencies, share information, and report on accomplishments.

The Summer of Peace Initiative began in 2008 after a variety of people in Cambridge raised concerns with the Peace Commission about young people in our community dealing with issues of potential violence and worries about safety. In past years, participants have found it useful to meet as a group before the summer, and once or twice during the summer, to check in and keep in touch.
