Our Mission

To educate, empower and support individuals and organizations in order to prevent violence, promote peaceful resolution of conflict and foster inclusive, equitable and safe communities locally, nationally and worldwide. The Peace Center has been working for community peace and social justice since 1982. Our programs are designed to reduce violence and conflict in our schools, homes and communities through a multicultural, community-based approach. We are dedicated to building peace by understanding and managing conflict in our community, our nation and our world.

Bridges to Peace

Join our leadership and staff for inspiration through storytelling. Hear personal stories about courage after bullying, bridge building after bias, and strength after adversity. Listen to our stories and learn about our impact in schools and communities.
Our new logo emphasizes TPC’s work with people, and the colors represent TPC’s specialized areas of expertise.


Blue – Communities
Blue, a color often associated with peace, represents the communities where we work.
Our communities are the groundwater for peace, and the sky is the limit for the potential of peace.


Orange – Bullying Prevention
The perfect addition to TPC’s logo acknowledges our work to reduce bullying. Orange is the nationally recognized color for bullying prevention.


Green – Schools
Green highlights our vital work in schools where we help grow kindness and empathy, and we offer strategies for peaceful conflict resolution.
