Criminal Justice

One of the most unjust systems in our society is our punitive, discriminatory criminal legal system. The most egregious example is our capital punishment system, which is why Ignite Peace is focused on ending the death penalty in Ohio.


Ignite Peace’s mission is to create a nonviolent society and Ignite Peace embraces nonviolent action as the pathway and strategy to systemic and societal change. Nonviolence is courageous and requires taking action in the face of injustice. Nonviolent practice seeks to understand perspectives, prioritizes restoration, centers accountability, and sees conflict as the opportunity for growth.

Immigration Justice

From the workplace, to the classroom, to our neighborhoods, immigrant families are part of our communities in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Ignite Peace works in partnership with immigrant leaders and local organizations to identify, call attention to, and organize around issues facing our local immigrant community.


Ignite Peace believes that racism is a system of advantage and disadvantage based on skin color that is both implicit and explicit, and includes race-based prejudice and institutional power. In alignment with our core values, Ignite Peace works through a framework of racial equity, centering the elimination of systemic racism and the creation of equitable opportunities for all humans.
