Gun violence knows no color, no religion and no financial status.
It does not care about the victim’s age or stage in life.

Be Stron g.  Use Words, Not Guns.


We are a group of loving and determined citizens fighting for the safety of all school age children in the Chicagoland area. We produce anti-gun violence Public Service Announcements (PSAs). We also develop and produce Educational Outreach Programs which teach conflict resolution to our children. Students learn to verbally communicate and intelligently address confrontations with their words, not with violence.


We want to honor Patrick Boswell, a wonderful boy who lost his life to gun violence when he was only 14 years old. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time.


Through our Public Service Announcements, we want to make the entire United States of America realize that the gun violence epidemic is everyone’s problem. It can directly affect anyone at anytime, no matter what neighborhood you call home. And we all need to help eradicate it.


We would also like to encourage children to engage in positive activities to be involved in after school and during summer break. If children are kept occupied, there will be less chance of them being lured into gangs and become involved with gun violence.
