Your Gift Makes a Real Difference

Founded in 2003 by Clemmie Greenlee following the gang related death of her only son, Nashville Peacemakers is a grassroots, non-profit organization that is working to end the cycle of violence one person, one child, one family at a time by promoting peace through unconditional love. Being loved, learning to love themselves and teaching others they are worth love is how the cycle is broken. Nashville Peacemakers serves the most overlooked in the 37208 zip code, creating a sense of belonging, connection and inclusion for those least benefiting from our region's growth through our three, trauma-informed, programs, Back to Basics, Straight Talk, Mothers Over Murder and our Community Needs Assistance efforts. Our youth mentoring programs, Back to Basics and Straight Talk work to provide kids 12-16 with basic life skills and help improve their feelings of self-worth to choose peaceful alternatives to violence. With our parents, we are an action-based grief support group that helps families who have been impacted by violence with a primary focus on the mother to support them not only through the grieving process but also in navigating the criminal proceedings when applicable.
