Urban Alliance envisions the transformation of urban communities one relationship at a time. We want Kalamazoo and beyond to be a place where every individual has the opportunity to live a safe, healthy, productive, and fulfilling life.

Group Violence Intervention is a group made up of past perpetrators of gun violence who now work with people who are, or are at risk, to commit acts of gun violence.
