Become a Member and Be Part of Building Peace

We believe we all have a stake in ending gun violence and created our membership program to offer new avenues to invest in peace in Chicago.
As a member of Strides for Peace, you’ll receive special benefits and join a community of individuals and organizations committed to building a Chicago where all can thrive, free of the fear of gun violence.

At the heart of our mission is creating bridges between people, communities and organizations.  Our membership program does just that by creating new ways for you to connect, commit, contribute and change (the “4C").  Learn about options for impact, support and benefits to find the level that is right for you.

Your consistent support (monthly or annual, whichever is best for you) creates a reliable source of income that Strides can count on to further our mission and be there for those on the frontlines of our city's greatest challenges.  Together we can support and uplift community organizations and build a Chicago where all can thrive. Thank you.
