A City in Crisis: Youth, Violence, and Breaking the Cycle


As Chicago’s epidemic of violence continues to escalate, our city is in a dangerous position that must be urgently addressed before more lives are lost.  Join us for a panel of activists and leaders in education, business and law enforcement for an important discussion on how the unique sectors of our communities can contribute to help solve this complex issue, and set Chicago on a positive path forward.

In every crisis, there’s a real opportunity.  We have amazing young men living on the south and west sides of Chicago with extraordinary potential to do good.
