Mission Statement

Garden of Peace Project is based in Pittsburgh, PA and was founded in 2012 by Rev. Michael David Battle to center black queer and trans youth, elevate and empower the narratives and lived experiences of black youth and their caretakers, and guide revolutionary spaces of healing and truth through art, education, and mentorship. ​ We design our work to heal the wounds of systemic and structural violence and oppression. We work to dismantle shame and isolation. We facilitate spaces to acknowledge and undo the wounding of individual, collective, and ancestral trauma. We unapologetically celebrate our lives and our gifts. We remember and reveal our magic. We have a specific focus on young people, mothers, and caretakers, as we recognize there is no movement for justice without the people who take care of the future. ​
