About us

Mission & Vision

The Mission of Nashville Peacemakers is twofold—to give youth in distressed neighborhoods the basic life skills and self-worth to choose peaceful alternatives to violence, and to support the mothers whose child has been victimized.

 

Our Vision is to be the catalyst of change on a worldwide scale, so all children live to be adults who lead productive and meaningful lives.

 

Our Leadership

Founder & CEO Clemmie Greenlee (aka “Ms. Clemmie”) was raised in an environment where poverty and violence were commonplace, and personally suffered the horrors of human sex trafficking that resulted in years of drug addiction, homelessness, prostitution and frequent incarceration. Since being rescued from the streets by the Magdalene House of Nashville, she has been tirelessly “paying it forward”—with a long list of accomplishments that include helping to establish Eden House in New Orleans (working to end sex trafficking), preventing dozens of gang retaliatory shootings, and supporting the basic needs of the homeless, the imprisoned and those disadvantaged by birth and geography.

In addition to being honored as “Nashvillian of the Year" by the Nashville Scene and receiving a coveted Soros Justice Fellowship grant for her innovative approach to violence prevention, Greenlee has been bestowed numerous awards for her work from organizations that include Bank of America,  Philadelphia-based Mothers in Charge, the Tennessee NAACP, and Nashville-based Community A.L.E.R.T. and The Wesley Foundation Campus Ministry.
