Congratulations to the Tomas Gutierrez, Shaquan Luna, Pearline Nugent, and Juan Carlos Rodriguez for successfully completing their internship with Urban Peace Movement! The program was recently featured in the Oakland Local website. Check out this excerpt from the article.
“On Monday June 17th, Urban Peace Movement held a graduation for the Peace Ambassadors. For the past eight months, they had been meeting to strategize about ending violence. The youth shared meals and got to know each other beyond school campuses and bus stops. They discussed the most challenging issues facing Oakland today, and came up with creative ways to address them.”
