Violence Prevention Coalition of Greater Los Angeles

mission:

The mission of the Violence Prevention Coalition of Greater Los Angeles is to unify and strengthen voices of member organizations and individuals committed to ending the epidemic of violence by providing education, resources and policy advocacy.

In 2012, the Violence Prevention Coalition began convening organizations providing arts-based programming to incarcerated youth. In 2014, the group came together formally as the Arts for Incarcerated Youth Network. This Network connects organizations providing arts programming for incarcerated youth to strengthen support for young people, build a collective voice to partner with probation and public agencies, and promote integration of arts organizations as part of a comprehensive reintegration strategy for young people.
