The Institute for Community Peace (ICP) serves as a leading national organization working to prevent violence and promote peace. ICP is guided by three fundamental beliefs: that violence is preventable, peace is possible, and that both are best achieved through community-driven strategies that demonstrate the power of collective local actions.
ICP uses community concern about violence prevention as an entree to build community capacity to address its root causes. In this way communities prevent violence and build community. ICP's work is long term and comprehensive. We provide expertise in preventing violence in all its forms, but believe that violence prevention is only the beginning of our work. It is imperative to also focus on community peace - building the values, structures and resiliencies needed to support community health.
ICP's work engages three integrated actions:
Discovery -- uncovering the root causes of violence and advancing community driven solutions to support community peace.
Cultivation - building the capacity of communities to adapt proven practice to and develop new practice to meet local need.
Transformation - stimulating the development of social values, policies and practices to support primary violence prevention and build community peace.
