Event Information

 

To Be A Kid is an inaugural child gun violence awareness event presented by The James-Gail Foundation, Inc. We want to remember children whose lives were taken away by gun violence. We want to acknowledge children survivors of gun violence. We want to provide a space for kids across the city of Chicago to come together to show what a day free from gun violence should be for them. A day where they get to play and have fun. A day where they can show their talents and share their dreams. A day where their only worry should be, to be a kid!

There are many organizations around the city that cater to children by providing them with different resources on a day to day basis. The James-Gail Foundation would like to invite some of them. There are individuals and companies who would like to invest in the dreams of children and we would like to have their assistance. The To Be A Kid event is a collective initiative to give kids a platform to show us who they are and what their dreams are. They are more than victims and we want them to be able to enter an atmosphere every single day where gun violence is not taking them away before they get a chance to live. 

To Be A Kid will remember kids who have fallen victim to gun violence and encourage a better future for kids across the city of Chicago.

We are changing the narrative today so that our story continues tomorrow.

Registration for this event will open on March 19, 2022. For more information please visit us at www.jamesgail.org. For sponsorship interests or other inquiries regarding this event please email Nicole McGee at nmcgee@jamesgail.org
