Rival Gang Members Build a Playground of Peace


Sunflower w address

Rival gang members in Chicago were tired of the violence. They didn’t even remember what they were fighting about. What they did know is that the neighborhood children needed a place to play. After an 8 month truce, they joined together to help build  a playground where their children can play together.

Imagine the possibilities!
