I’ve been working on a listing of Chicago nonprofits working against violence and helping under resourced youth.
Know of any in particular that may be missed? There are a ton of smaller and newer organizations that do not have websites. Reaching out the internet for help.
Wondering what it is for?
It will go into a free, small run zine that will premiere May 10th at a three person art exhibition I’m participating in. The zine is partnered with two other bodies of work of mine, discussing the current state of Chicago violence. It will also be released as a free PDF/eBook afterwards.
It’s a really important conversation that needs to be had, including action that needs to be taken afterward, which is why it’s important to feature as many organizations as possible so we all can help. What better way to spread the word than visually.
Tweet me at @onthefirefly with things you find.
