Welcome to the NATIONAL COUNCIL FOR URBAN PEACE AND JUSTICE on the web!
The National Council for Urban Peace and Justice (NCUPJ) is an organization which has a dual mission.
We are a social advocacy group committed to pursuing justice, fairness and equity regarding housing, education, community-police relations, health care, family stability, political empowerment and environmental justice.
We are a human services agency providing a variety of services specifically targeted for individuals, families and neighborhoods who are 'at risk' for involvement in drug and/or gang related violence.
Since our beginning, we have been in the vanguard of the struggle to end the epidemic of urban violence: a violence often fueled by combinations of racism, white-supremacy, deteriorating social conditions, self-hatred, decadence and public policies of 'benign neglect'.
Throughout it all, the NCUPJ has maintained an uncompromising commitment to the urban peace and justice movement.
