LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA
PeacePlayers unites divided communities through the sport of basketball. In the U.S., historical divides driven by race and geography have created an inequitable society. PeacePlayers is working to develop a network of young leaders who come together across community divides and become catalysts in building a more peaceful and equitable society. In Los Angeles, we operate in the Watts Neighborhood in two housing complexes: Nickerson Gardens and Jordan Downs. In partnership with the Boys and Girls Club, PeacePlayers creates safe, fun and engaging spaces for youth to come together across divides and grow as leaders.
