The Louis D. Brown Peace Institute (LPBPI) is a community-based organization led and staffed by individuals personally affected by violence. Founded in 1994 the LDBPI has worked on the front lines providing social/emotional support, and resources to families surviving the murder of a loved one. The Institute was founded by the parents of 15-year-old Louis D. Brown, who was killed in the crossfire of a gang shooting as he walked to a Teens Against Gang Violence Christmas party in 1993. Across the communities of Boston, survivors of violence are referred to the LDBPI for help in the aftermath of homicide. Building on its solid foundation of providing unique services to families in need, LDBPI provides training and technical assistance to service providers, schools, and the larger community. The LDBPI is committed to providing services to survivors of homicide and is also committed to primary prevention through the development and implementation of Peace Curricula for school aged youth.
