VOICES OF OUR YOUTH A CALL FOR PEACE



We have an upcoming event that we are hosting this weekend and hope that you can attend as well as bring family and friends. We are hosting a film screening of Making a Killing by Brave New Films at an art exhibit of Faces Not Forgotten.


This event is in observance of National Crime Victims' Rights Week (NCVRW) which is observed April 10-16 this year. The theme underscores the importance of early intervention and victim services in establishing trust with victims, which begins to restore their hope for healing and recovery.

The Faces Not Forgotten Project was started by artist Christine Llewski. She began painting portraits of children who have died from gun violence in memory of Lorenzo Rosebaugh.

Join us as at this exhibit which presents 34 Chicago artists who joined the social justice movement by painting portraits of Chicago youth who have lost their lives as victims of gun violence.
