For every life lost to gun violence, four more are at risk due to retaliation. Reduce the homicide rate in Indianapolis by choosing peace.

The Indy Peace Fellowship is a partnership between the Indy Public Safety Foundation and the Office of Public Health and Safety, developed as part of the City's Violence Reduction Strategy. The program, aimed at reducing gun violence through a data-driven, community-based approach, works to identify those at the highest risk for committing gun violence and provides interventions, resources, and intense mentor programming to build connections in communities affected by gun violence.

HOW INDY PEACE CAN HELP.

Interrupting  Violence Before It Starts

Outreach workers and violence interrupters respond to shootings and homicides, calming tensions, preventing retaliation, and offering crucial resources to those affected.

Promoting Healing and Restoration

Indy Peace provides trauma-informed care and mental health resources to individuals at the highest risk of committing and being a victim of gun violence.

Data-Driven Impact

Indy Peace uses data analysis and credible messengers to identify individuals and communities at risk, ensuring targeted impact.

Breaking the Cycle

Indy Peace creates individualized LifeMAP plans that tackle social, emotional, and economic needs, addressing the root causes of gun violence in Indianapolis.
