A Day Without Hate/Peace Events

Back to School/ Peace Event  (August 2017):

YLC members partnered with Bessemer Park and the South Chicago Chamber to hold a Back-to-School/ Peace Event. Over 300 people attended

Goals, identified by YLC leaders: Create a safe space, build community, have fun, and recruit new members.

Youth leaders planned and ran games for the festival to bring the community together. Games included: sack races, egg and spoon race, balloon toss, tug of war, dance contest, and a basketball shooting contest. Leaders broke down the Wall of Hate, where people wrote down experiences they wanted to let go.

YLC members welcoming people and speaking about the YLC and breaking down the Wall of Hate:
