Director of Community Engagement
Peace Coleman is I Grow Chicago’s newest staff member. He has worked out of the Peace House through Alternatives over the past year as a Peace Ambassador and restorative justice circle keeper, leading healing circles in some of our most vulnerable moments, as well as facilitating and training our Wisdom Council. In doing so, he has brought hope to our community, an impact he will continue to expand in his new role as Director of Community Engagement. Coming from a history of incarceration and street life, he has made a huge change in his life and has been walking with his chosen name of Peace for two years now. He credits many of his life changes to his discovery of restorative justice. Peace is a committed father to his four children and continues to grow himself and his community.
We engage, empower, and employ Englewood residents to lead our healing programs.
It takes one seed, one step, one chance to change a person’s life. And one dollar can go a long way in helping us to make that happen.
