It is estimated that in the United States alone, we spend over 3 billion dollars on the effects and associated costs of violence. Yet, it is largely preventable when a coordinated and strategic approach is taken with community, local and state agencies. The River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding takes this very approach, addressing violence with a continuum of prevention and intervention strategies that involve the general public, at-risk populations, and those that are healing from the impact of violence by embedding best and next practices into the complex systems within a local community.
The mission of RPCP is to enrich the lives of individuals, families and communities by providing and promoting the best practices and principles of peacebuilding and global sustainability.
Learning to resolve conflicts through healthy communication breaks the cycle of violence and creates a safer community
