The event is slated for Saturday June 24, 2017 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Indianapolis Public School’s James Russell Lowell School #51 (3426 Roosevelt Avenue, Indianapolis). In the weeks ahead, look for announcements about sponsors, participants, activities and other detailed information about this year’s event as all the pieces are put in place.
If you missed our past Peace Festivals, you don’t want to miss this year’s! As in the past, the event will focus on connecting people and families with resources, companies, and organizations in order to help strengthen the community. Meeting face to face in the neighborhood is your opportunity to find out what resources are available, and give feedback to the people delivering these resources. You will see firsthand the efforts that are being made to improve Health, Education, Employment, Mentoring and other key areas of concern to reduce violence and crime in Indianapolis. By giving individuals and families the tools they need to succeed, these organizations are making a real difference in people’s lives.
Show support for the community, show support for the efforts to reduce crime and violence, connect with resources, have a fun afternoon with the family, and enjoy music, food, drinks, prizes, giveaways, and positive people! There are so many reasons to stop by and be a part of the event!

Indianapolis continues to change and grow; the need for community organizations to help our community address issues that come along with those changes is also growing. In an effort to continue to connect people with resources in the community, and encourage the development of these resources, Circle Up Indy has featured community organizations and events on its Facebook page and on this website, including Community Health Network, The Edna Martin Christian Center, The Bloom Project, Mission 29:18, and others.
WeH.Y.P2.E.

On Monday August 22nd, at Douglas Park it was all about serving the community as the focus was on nonviolence and building a stronger union with one another. Community and Police in Partnership Against Crime, Indianapolis City-County Council Vice President Zach Adamson, and Circle Up Indy held an event to give backpacks and school supplies to children, and show community solidarity in the fight against violence in our streets.
City-County Councilor Adamson and Circle Up Indy's James Wilson provided photos of the event, others were submitted by community members.
