About the Event

Join us for Martin Luther King Day of Service 2020! We're joining The Institute for Nonviolence for their program, "My Dream, My Chicago." We'll learn how to use the Kingian principles of nonviolence to reduce gang and gun violence in the community.  Enjoy lunch with attendees. The program runs from 10 AM to 2 PM. Bring donations of toiletries, which we will use to create care packages for their clients.

The IOPA member meeting is that evening, and we would like a couple of program attendees to talk about your experience at the event.
