To many of us, 38th and Chicago could be 100 miles away. To others, it feels like it’s next door.

The trial of Derek Chauvin and the recent targeted spa shooting in Atlanta this month, evoke emotions:

  • fear
  • anger
  • confusion
  • hurt
  • pain
  • a hope for justice
  • a need for healing

It is our hope that our community will respond with a willingness to listen to the many voices, the many stories of our young people, our families, our elders, in particular our Black, Brown, Asian, Indigenous and other neighbors whose voices often go unheard and to understand the trauma they may be experiencing. Let’s provide places and spaces and support for their stories to be told and our healing to begin.
