What is your vision of a community at peace and how do we get there?

This documentary shares the story of a family's love and tragic loss of their one and only child while residing in Chicago's Pilsen Community.

This film is a testament of the will of a family to not let their son's passing go in vain.  Approx. 30min.

Screening followed by discussion facilitated by Elizabeth Maldonado, co-founder of the J-DEF Peace Project.
