America has a history of sending our military to foreign lands for “peacekeeping missions.” While helping others is laudable, gangs have been allowed to fester at home. Our inner cities are almost as war-torn as neighborhoods in Iraq and Afghanistan, only instead of military bombs overhead, civilian shooters reign on the ground.

Russel Simmons has decided to do something about that. He is funding and supporting an American group called, appropriately, Peacekeepers. The peacekeepers are a non-violent group who go into violence-ravaged neighborhoods and spread love with their presence. Right now, they are only in 2 neighborhoods, but other communities have asked for them and they will need everyone’s help in order to oblige.
