The Detroit chapter of Peace & Prosperity Youth Action Movement (PPM) began in 2020 as a natural offshoot of Detroit-based graduates from Freedom Summer Organizing School.

Our founding members coalesced around the following priorities. . . .

Our Priorities

Environmental Justice, especially increasing access to, ownership of, and the sense of belonging that Black youth experience in green spaces as well as nourishing community gardens and food cooperatives

Education Justice, emphasizing closing resource disparities between urban, predominately Black, and suburban, largely white, schools, and achieving the Black Lives Matter at School demands.

Community Safety & Ending Violence by strengthening neighborly ties and ending gun, police, gender-based violence, without increasing the size and scope of the criminal-legal system;



  • Guest appearances on 1440 AM Radio to share about our priority issues


  • Writing an opinion-editorial piece about our schools and the issues we see everyday



  • #WhyThemShoes is an action project from Freedom Summer that raises awareness about the issue of gun violence, including police violence, and its impacts on Black youth
