COVID-19 Response: We're ALL in this together
Strides for Peace is a small organization with a big vision — a Chicago where all can thrive, free from the fear of gun violence. Throughout this crisis we are working to raise funds for and awareness about what community organizations are doing to confront this crisis, and provide an opportunity for people who care to get involved.
As always, our COVID response is led by listening to what communities tell us they need and then doing everything we can to make it happen — sourcing supplies and donations, connecting people who want to help, and serving as a collective voice for grassroots organizations.
