NAAIA Chicago, in partnership with Dive In Chicago is supporting a film event viewing for “Chicago at the Crossroad” to bring a renewed focus on poverty and violence in segregated communities.
DIVE IN CHICAGO. On September 24, 2020 we will examine the root causes of the devastating cycle of poverty and violence in Chicago's segregated communities in 'Chicago at the Crossroad' (https://vimeo.com/295688114).
This award-winning 2019 film breaks down "the systems that created, the laws that isolated and the policies that abandoned" segregation in our city. Building off of this conversation, community leaders | activists | policy specialists will share stories and identify actions that we can each take today to make a difference in our communities.
For Chicago is but a cautionary tale to other cities. As 'Chicago at the Crossroad' warns: "Many large metropolitan areas may be heading down the same path. Chicago is but a warning sign for all of us to heed." The time is NOW for us to take ACTION.
