To kick off National Youth Violence Prevention Awareness week, we’d love if you joined us at our upcoming event, Lessons in the Cycle, featuring youth voices and verses regarding best practices in violence prevention and trauma-informed care. In partnership with UIC’s Urban Youth Trauma Center, the Free Write Alumni workshopped, created & performed their pieces on camera, each responding powerfully to one of the five trauma informed practices Best Practices for Violence Prevention and Trauma Intervention.

This feature the world premiers of the five short videos, a panel discussion about the best practices, an art exhibition and performances by Free Write Arts & Literacy students and Project Fire, direct action on issues of violence, food, and much more.
Space is limited! Please RSVP here -> https://is.gd/LessonsInTheCycle
