Pride Peace Prevention

Media Type: 

The Youth Violence Prevention Resource Center (YVPRC) is a partnership of young people, community members, artists, organizations, and scholars who are applying the best available science to violence prevention while recognizing the limitations of science in addressing the everyday challenges of many communities. YVPRC believes that racial injustice produces conditions that lead to young people viewing violence as their best option, and that by increasing everyone’s knowledge of Black history we can help change the narrative about our communities, our people, and ourselves. YVRC hopes to raise critical consciousness in an effort to promote racial justice and reduce youth violence.

YVPRC seeks to influence the social context of youth in Louisville through the implementation of a three-year social norming campaign. The campaign works to cultivate a positive racial identity and foster community dialogue around difficult issues such as racial and social justice. In doing so, YVRC hopes to raise critical consciousness in an effort to promote racial justice and reduce youth violence.

Pride resources highlight truths and contributions of historically marginalized groups, challenging the mainstream Eurocentric perspectives. The project also offers several key calls to action for youth, families, institutions of power, aspiring allies, organizations, and the community at large.
