Free Screening and Discussion: "I Am for Peace"

Chicago, IL



WTTW, in partnership with the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and Perspectives Charter Schools presents a FREE screening of the documentary I Am for Peace. Like so many of our cities, Chicago is being torn apart by violence. Talk to the students at any school on the South and West Sides of the city, and almost every single student will tell you that someone they love has been impacted by gun violence. Almost every single one knows someone who has been shot. But our young people are also a part of the solution. "I Am for Peace" shares the inspiring story of how students at Perspectives Charter Schools are taking lessons from the classroom to the streets to organize one of the largest student-led peace marches in the city's modern-day history and create a lasting movement for peace. Immediately following the screening there will be a panel discussion with questions and comments from the audience.
