Basketball Tournament & Community Planning to Reduce Gun Violence in Auburn Gresham

About Event

For too long our young people in Chicago have had to morn the loss of friends and family to gun violence. But 9 young at Perspectives Middle Academy are ready to put an end to this. These young men invite you to a community 3 on 3 basketball tournament, and a facilitated discussion about gun violence in Chicago.

These young men hope that coming out of this tournament, they will be able to create a plan to reduce gun violence in their communities, so come out eager to play, have fun, and brainstorm solutions to gun violence in our city!
