Challenge

There are thousands of youth activists not associated with larger gun violence prevention groups like March For Our Lives & Everytown, due to them not being associated with those groups they don't have the same support network & resources so they can't necessarily have as large of an impact on the gun violence prevention movement.

Solution

Chi-Town GVP Summit provides training/workshops, independent research, ongoing feedback & support, nonfinancial resources & more to those youth activists working on the gun violence prevention movement but not associated with larger groups like March For Our Lives & Everytown.

Long-Term Impact

The potential long term impact of the project will include life skills for those who participate in the summit, networking that could last a lifetime, valuable insight into gun violence & valuable leadership skills that will be helpful for a lifetime.
