Join OPEN Center, The Peace Exchange, and Envisioning Justice for a conversation with formerly incarcerated men of color to hear about their journeys toward peacebuilding in Chicago communities. In addition to hearing these personal stories, learn more about The Peace Exchange’s model to disrupt the cycle of violence.

In hearing the stories of young men from Little Village and from North Lawndale, there will also be a discussion about how promoting peacemaking also promotes connections across Chicago neighborhoods that are too often divided.
