Rebels for Peace in a nutshell
Rebels For Peace is a youth led organization armed with the power of the mind rebelling against the common thought that this is the way Chicago suppose to be.we are focusing on bring faith and hope back to the city of Chicago that the circle of violence and retaliation will come to an end, if we all change our mindsets. We mix this with loads of fun and learning in the most creative ways far as events, gatherings, podcasts, mentoring, etc etc. We Pushing our youth to become leaders of change through-out their community instead of what’s normal or being a follower of destructive behaviour.
We focus ONLY on helping people from the INSIDE-out, as there are so many other programs trying to put band aids on the the circumstances.(like jobs, creative programs etc) While these things are great, if the current thinking still exists, we wont ever fix the problem, and we will be stuck with coping with symptoms.
