Community Advocacy

The Urban Peace Institute (UPI) is a recognized leader in the field of community safety, just policing, and systems reform to end violence and mass incarceration. For over 17 years, UPI has worked to develop and implement innovative solutions to address community violence and engage in system reform. UPI was founded by civil rights leader Connie Rice in response to Los Angeles’ failed and costly 30-year war on gangs that resulted in 450,000 youth arrests and persistent conflict between law enforcement and communities of color. Since its establishment, UPI has worked tirelessly to reform community safety practices. In 2007, UPI pioneered a groundbreaking A Call to Action report and worked in partnership with the City of Los Angeles and Los Angeles Police Department to effectively change the way Los Angeles deals with gangs and violence.

Women's Shelter Donations

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Delano shelter Alliance Against Family Violence and Sexual Assault.

Overall the shelter picked up 3 loads of donations. The community donated LOTS of amazing items!


Due to the high volume of donations we currently are not taking donations BUT the good news is the shelter has new storage and is getting it ready to take in more donations next month.


I will share details when donations will resume and what is the current families located at the shelter needs.

If anyone wants to help collect donations in 2021, please fill out the form below.


The help would be greatly appreciated!
