We are Taking Back the streets of Chicago from gun violence! 

Last year, we held #TheTakeBack at Ellis Park on 37th and Cottage Grove, coined "The Low End".  It drew 146 youth, 47 adults, and 73 volunteers for a day of activities in a safe environment. #TheTakeBack was completely funded by The Community Builders, ranked as one of the top 50 housing developers in the nation, and PlayStreets, an initiative created by The Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA). ​

This year, we are looking to expand!! We are hoping to add a mentorship aspect, increase sponsorship, give school supplies, provide a scholarship, and triple the amount of children. 
Date: Saturday, July 11 
Location: Ellis Park - 3700 S Cottage Grove Ave Chicago, IL 60653
