Description

​This toolkit was designed to support community conversations and written reflection as part of Now Is The Time, a Chicago initiative inspiring residents to make positive change in their communities and stop youth violence and intolerance. The toolkit features 6 first-person narratives written by adults from underserved communities in Chicago, discussion questions and dialogue prompts written by CCR staff, and creative writing prompts written by our partner on this project, The Neighborhood Writing Alliance. The toolkit is designed to help block clubs, schools, places of worship, families, and community members talk about, write about, and connect about issues of youth violence and intolerance.
