Our mission is to increase the collective impact of community organizations working to end gun violence, save lives and build a stronger Chicago.
Founded in 2014 by Margaret Bazckowski, Strides for Peace is a registered 501(c)(3) which envisions a Chicago where all can thrive and live free of the fear of gun violence.
Our Community Partners and Affiliates are cornerstones of their communities and share the common goal of ending gun violence. By creating turn-key opportunities that generate unencumbered financial resources, Strides for Peace supports existing programs while building an infrastructure for new collaboration and capacity building.
We are on a mission and need your help. We hope you’ll join us, because every stride counts.
