The purpose of the Peace Fest
Did you know, 50% of Chicago residents have experienced a shooting by the time they are 40 years old? That percentage is even higher for Black and Brown residents. Moreover, shootings are up 19% in the city of Chicago since 2019. IEi stands in solidarity with our neighbors to bring peace, love, and healing to Englewood and the city, which is too often touched by gun violence.
These grim statistics are from a WGN segment which featured Imagine Englewood if, the Peace Campus, and Englewood Heroes. A big thank you to WGN and Ben Bradley for highlighting the importance of peace and healing in Englewood and beyond. Check out the entire video below!
