Living in Chicago, it is easy to become numb to the violence that occurs in our city. Being bombarded by headline after headline, statistic after statistic cause a desensitization to occur. Numbness turns into hopelessness in a feeling that makes us feel too small to do anything about the violence. A significant portion of the population of the city cannot choose to ignore this part of their lives.
What it does
If you feel convicted to experience this inescapable reality, you can take part in our 1 month challenge. the Challenge is to set real time notifications on your phone of whenever there is a breaking news article of a fatal shooting. On top of this, we built a website that tracks fatal shootings for the past week, but also has a button saying "Join in Prayer" to be able allow viewers to respond.
