Community organizations need your support more than ever.

We’re bringing community organizations to you through our Choose Hope, Why I Run, RAGV2020 films/videos and our Interactive Map.

Each week we’ll be introducing new people and organizations on the frontlines of gun violence and COVID-19.

We hope you’ll tune in, connect, and join our virtual run where everyone, everywhere can be part of building peace. Learn More


Our Choose Hope series transports viewers to the frontlines of communities facing the greatest challenges providing a window into what is happening on the ground NOW and introducing the hidden heroes who through their actions, choose hope, no matter the odds. Watch highlights from this summer’s series here, or follow this link to view the individual Choose Hope features.


The Race Against Gun Violence has always been a metaphor for what drives and inspires people in the fight against gun violence. Our Why I Run campaign gives voice to a wide spectrum of how gun violence impacts people and our society, a testament to why we must strive for a Chicago where all can thrive, free from the fear of gun violence.
