Life Camp

Urban Alliance is hosting two Life Camp events to help provide area youth with tools and resources to step outside the cycles of gun violence within Kalamazoo.

Life Camp is a two-day event coordinated by Urban Alliance and community partners to encourage and support local youth in advocating for human dignity rather than participating in destructive behaviors that lead to gun violence.
