Santiago de Cali has been one of the cities that has suffered the most from violence in Colombia and was for years ravaged by drugs and gang violence. Santiago de Cali has established initiatives on urban peace and protection of human rights through Promotors of Peace and Civic Culture initiated by the first Secretary for Peace and Civic Culture. These initiatives on urban peace include reconciliation and restorative justice through social, psychological, and educational activities for the city. They work with victims, former combatants, and ex-gang youngsters.
