About Us

#ChicagoPeaceSurge is a weekend opportunity, Labor Day (Sept. 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th), for the entire city to unite to accept the #ChicagoPeaceChallenge in the communities that have the most unrest.



In unity, accept the responsibility of creating a working model to transform our communities into a clean, safe, productive and peace-full place to live, work and play again.



The beginning of a partnership between individual residents, organizations, groups, civil servants, businesses, all willing to use their self-determination, networks and connections, to foster collective work and responsibility for the mission.



There is strength in unity.  As individuals we make a difference, as a collective we make an impact. We all have the power to create peace. 


This work is being done by all, coordinated and facilitated by The Black Star Project and Justice or Else: Chicago
