Strides for Peace: Race Against Gun Violence

September 19, 2020 @ 8:00 am - September 26, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

The Race Against Gun Violence (RAGV) raises awareness and funds for community organizations working for a more peaceful Chicago where all can thrive, free from the fear of gun violence. With Covid-19 increasing hardship in the very same communities contending with gun violence, RAGV is an opportunity to choose hope, support the life-changing work of nonprofits like BUILD and provide a platform for people who care about ending gun violence.
This year, join BUILD youth like Latee, staff, and supporters virtually the week of September 19-26, as we run anytime, anywhere to lift our voices against gun violence and celebrate peace. Register or get involved today at https://stridesforpeace.carrd.co/
Join the movement and Support Team BUILD!
