Our story has never been about a single organization, but the collective actions of our partners and friends, and the power of working together for a common cause.
Throughout the summer, as part of our Choose Hope series, we’ve transporter viewers to the communities facing the greatest challenges, telling the stories of community organizations and their response to the challenges of gun violence, Covid-19 and racial injustice.
We’ve put a spotlight on the people who lift up each other’s work, find ways to dig deep and Choose Hope no matter the odds.
They show us the power of believing in our communities and living hope through action.
Their leadership and inspiration are essential to our collective efforts to build peace in Chicago.
