What is Summer of Hope?

Summer of Hope is a community-led initiative focused on peace, joy, and opportunity. It is a Safe Hopeful Healthy Baton Rouge initiative and activation leveraging community organizations and events. This collective impact strategy is bringing hope directly to neighborhoods, streets, and families that have experienced violence.

The Peace Pit Experience

For 15 weeks, The Peace Pit stopped in neighborhoods across the city to share a message of hope, push a narrative of peace, and open the mic to our BR people to join the conversation of how to make Baton Rouge safe, hopeful, and healthy.
