A Hope for Chiraq!
According to news sources, the city of Chicago saw a surge in gun violence in 2016: 762 murders, 3,550 shooting incidents, and 4,331 shooting victims.
Even more surreal, sources say that 75% of Chicago shooting victims are black. The male to female ratio is 10:1.
Our vision is that Chasing23 will have a greater impact on the south and west side communities of Chicago. An impact that brings about a decrease in violence, gang involvement and increase in educational attainment and civic engagement.
