“Join us as we celebrate the grand opening of our full-size basketball court, the first project of our Peace Campus!
We’ll have a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring 7th district police Commander Johnson, who has championed our court, as well as food, music, and games. We’ll also be honoring our supporters and the residents who helped bring this court to life.”
ABOUT OUR HEALING JUSTICE COURT:
Over the past couple months, we have been transforming two vacant lots on the block of our Peace House into a court for healing justice. This play space for all ages aims to create accessible alternatives to violence and opportunities for physical activity and stress relief. Managed by community elders, this space will include a yoga and basketball court, walking track, and bleacher seating for youth and adults.
ABOUT I GROW CHICAGO:
The mission of I Grow Chicago is to grow Englewood from surviving to thriving through community connection, skill building, and opportunity. We have a Peace House built by the community for the community, where we host more than 15 healing programs for all ages.
