“My people are poor. And they are tired. And they are determined to live. Our South side is a place a part. Each piece of our living is a protest.” – Lorraine Hansberry from Young, Gifted, and Black.
Generations are being wiped out due to the angers and illnesses of society. It’s the hunger pains, financial instability, mental sickness, gang-related wars, and lack of knowledge to acquire resources that fuel these violence crimes which result in the loss children and adults. The shooters have no self-care. Their belief system in life is non-existent and therefore feel they have nothing to live for. Their instinct is to react violently when they feel disrespected . Their targets are never in focus so we lose another baby. We lose another teen. We lose another life trying to be better and working to rise to their full potential. We lose another dreamer, visionary, scientist, teacher, actor, singer, etc.
WE LOSE ANOTHER LIFE.
The Father and son relationship is one of the most prominent. This is a young male’s first introduction and example of a man. His movements, characteristics, the way he speaks to women, the way he carries himself and talks to people, these are all noticed by that younger seed. The Father lives and the Son watches him. It’s imperative that the right messages and movements are being passed down for this will reflect as the son continues to grow and establish himself as a man and as part of society. Teach your child. PROTECT YOUR CHILD.

The ‘Don’t Kill My Chance’ campaign visually emphasizes the pains of the city as it relates to senseless violence and the loss of youth. Our hope with this visual movement is to focus the social lens on the endurance of life and the importance of allowing children an equal opportunity and chance to grow up and live the life of their dreams and desires.
Join on us in our movement to raise peace and opportunity. Hear No Evil. See No Evil.
