Street Corner Resources was recently selected to operate the Cure Violence initiative in Central Harlem. Cure Violence (previously known as CeaseFire) stops the spread of violence in communities by using the methods and strategies associated with disease control – detecting and interrupting conflicts, identifying and treating the highest risk individuals, and changing social norms.

The I Am Peace Movement is exactly what it says, a movement for peace that begins with each of us individually, then connects us, collectively. I Am Peace was initiated by Iesha Sekou and has become the rallying cry for Street Corner Resources’ efforts to establish peace as a way often life in our community. To wit, the Peace Café, Occupy the Corners, Lie Down to Stop Gun Violence are just some of the on-going activities of the Movement. Get on the Peace Train!

The I Am Peace T-shirt has become a regular part of the wardrobe of many a Harlemite! Wear the Message, Become the Message!!

Street Corner Resources established the I Am Peace Café in 2015. Located on the basement level of 233 West 140th Street, it has become a hub for gatherings that celebrate peace and the talents that our young people have to offer. Once monthly, we host a Peace Café Open Mic Night where young artists rap, sing, dance and entertain in an environment of positivity and peace.

Additionally, SCR hosts a Summer Film Festival in the outside community garden on the same block.

Occupy the Corners was initiated in the Summer of 2012, after a spate of violent incidents plagued the Harlem community. Street Corner Resources along with several other community based organizations and individuals came together to “occupy” various “hotspot” street corners in Harlem as a positive presence against gun and gang violence. Each summer since then, the Occupy the Corner movement has made its presence felt.
