The Public Peace Initiative is a movement of peacemakers building bridges of unity, reconciliation, and hope for our world

The pursuit of “Peace” in our communities means to pursue a world where we “All Flourish”.
From our churches to our government, to our businesses and acts of philanthropy – we are purposed to move toward peace!
As people of God we are being beckoned into our divine identity as sons and daughters, to walk out our calling as peacemakers with Jesus, the Prince of Peace, to build bridges of unity, reconciliation, and hope for our world.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

– Matthew 5:9 –

Jerry would then choose to go back to the streets to advocate for his neighbors who are trying to survive the harsh elements and reality of not having a home.…READ MORE

We partner with the community to foster hope and restore lives.

We worked with St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church and the Colorado Village Collaborative to launch a fundraising campaign to build the first tiny home village for women transitioning out of homelessness. 

Check out our impact report:

FACING HOMELESSNESS IMPACT REPORT


“The campaign that we built under Patrick’s leadership highlighted themes that emerged directly from the words and experiences of villagers of the previous tiny home village. Our constituency then responded to the message by launching their own fundraisers that would go towards our funding goals.”
