A Response to Chicago's Violence: Community Action Day- May 4th

We know a gun can kill. We know a community can grow.  This is the text of the posters around Chicago promoting  Community Action Day on May 4th.  Sponsored by All Stars Project, Inc., the meet-up starts at 10:00 am at University Center Conference, 525 S. State Street, 2nd Floor.  The purpose is to kick start a new kind of conversation about violence in Chicago's neighborhoods and to take a step towards creating some new solutions.  Community members and dozens of community organizations will be going door-to-door to hold discussions about gun violence and possible solutions to the problem.

Read my previous posts regarding Community Action Day and learn more about the All Stars Project program.  Check out this interview with All Stars Project, Inc. Director, David Cherry.  David is organizing Community Action Day.
