RTP

(Roadmap To Peace)

Roadmap to Peace was born out of an urgent community call to action and change after six Latinx youth were killed over a five-week period in 2012 in the Mission District. In response to the shootings, the Mission Peace Collaborative, a longstanding community coalition, organized a community town hall. Attended by over 300 community members, the town hall concluded that existing systems, strategies, and policies were ineffective in addressing the needs of San Francisco’s most disconnected Latinx youth. They determined that a new, comprehensive, community-driven strategy was needed. Latinx organizations embarked on a two-year community planning process that included multiple town halls, working groups, and community report backs, resulting in a collective vision. In November 2013, that vision was identified as Roadmap to Peace (RTP).
RTP's vision articulates a plan for community-informed solutions that was restorative, focused on trauma and healing, and offered timely culturally responsive and coordinated holistic services for those most impacted by violence.
The vision of the Roadmap to Peace (RTP) is for all families to live in peaceful, safe and flourishing neighborhoods where youth can thrive and actively connect and contribute to their community. Its purpose is to develop a holistic and community-based approach to address the unmet needs of Latinx youth and their families in San Francisco.
