Description: The California Coalition of Barrios Unidos began as a community based peace movement in the violent streets of urban California in 1977 and incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1993. Over the past twenty-five years Barrios Unidos has developed a model that seeks to reclaim and restore the lives of struggling youth while promoting unity amongst families and neighbors through community building efforts.
Mission: To promote multicultural social justice, nonviolence and economic equity through cultural healing, civic leadership and youth & community development.
Programs: ​Santa Cruz Barrios Unidos currently operates eight community programs. Each lies on different parts of the life cycle. From elementary youth to elders within the incarcerated community, we are there to provide specialized community support during all developmental stages of life.

Our work seeks to counter oppression, trauma, cultural misappropriation and spiritual bankruptcy by maintaining a position and place of love and understanding.
