Join us and Rally for the Chicago Office of Gun Violence Prevention on Friday, March 1, 2019 at City Hall from 2-3:30 PM.

We are working with Live Free Chicago during our Annual Human Rights Conference, where together we will demand for an office to save lives!

Rally and speakers will be asking City Council to step up and support the Chicago Office of Gun Violence Prevention to care for our communities and invest in saving lives by:
1. Creating an Office of Gun Violence Prevention (OGVP) using a public health approach
2. Allocating 50 million dollars to adequately staff the OGVP and provide resources to community-based organizations
3. Supporting a community-led process for the creation of a city-wide strategy to end gun violence.

This rally is our time to unite around the issues, and get ready to fight for the office this year.
