3. hired over 50 formally incarcerated men & women who are now tax paying citizens, and reconnected with their families/their children

4. Placed over 276 teens/young adults in jobs (summer, construction, temp employment, work program),

5. Over 156 teens/young adults get their high school diploma, GED, or attend alternative school

6. Helped over 75 families in their journey to healing after loosing a loved one to violence

My name is Erica Ford. I am an activist and the founder of Life Camp, a non-profit organization whose mission is to make Peace A Lifestyle.


 For over 25 years, I have commited my life to fighting back against Opression & Rasicm in America. We have change minds, saved lives & created a sytem to reduce the violence in the streets of NYC and across the country.


Trauma is Real and inside these jails it's a NIGHTMARE. Our work is Important!!  We've worked alongside community leaders and activists from across the city to create systems that gives young & old the tools they need to turn their lives around and heal from the impact of Trauma.

What an inspiration it was meeting you all in Aspen. We honor what you have done so far, and want to support your efforts to LEAD WITH LOVE to over come social injustice. I loved the yoga class taught by the Urban Yogis, and wish you all continued success, Peace.
