What Is United In Peace?
UNITED IN PEACE is a growing multi-ethnic, multi-faith popular movement that is successfully uniting the diverse peoples of Los Angeles County to work together in bringing peace to our inner cities.
The goal is to reduce the negative of violence in our communities by concentrating more of our peoples’ attention and energy on creating the positive of peace.
The Peace Rides have traveled throughout LA, Long Beach, Compton, Carson and Inglewood. Along the way these rides have impacted the lives of countless thousands, distributing peace materials including The Way to Happiness and the Million Man March pledge, while effectively bringing together people of all faiths, backgrounds and interests in our common goal for more a peaceful society.
Peace is something we can all get behind. So, this movement is yours. It is ours. Together, let us be United in Peace.

HOW WE MEASURE OUR SUCCESS: LIVES SAVED, REDUCTION IN VIOLENT CRIME, REHABILITATED INDIVIDUALS, EDUCATING AND TRAINING DELIVERED, VIABLY EMPLOYED INDIVIDUALS (REDUCED UNEMPLOYMENT), NEW BUSINESSES STARTED AND VIABLE.
HOW WE DO IT: Every month for almost a decade United in Peace conducts which go through the most troubled cities, bringing people out of their homes and sharing the Way to Happiness, the Million Man pledge and prayer. The ride culminates in a big festival known as UpFest with entertainment and resources to give them help with drug and criminal rehab, education, getting out of gangs, help with raising children, etc. These individuals are then invited to our center where they will be assessed and a full program developed to handle whatever issues they have, to create a plan for them to become viable and independent people contributing to and building their communities.
