This Saturday (3/24) there will be a Keepin’ It Real Forum focusing on gang members and drug dealers. These forums are intended to be respectful Q&A sessions between convicted gang members and drug dealers who volunteered for this event and the community. The individuals will share there stories in an effort to help the community be better informed and prepared for this type of activity in our neighborhoods.
This Keepin’ It Real forum is a partnership between the Chicago Police Department and the Safer Foundation that connects youth and their guardians with correctional facilities inmates for the purpose of
providing the “real” story on inmate life and the pitfalls that parents and youth can avoid. Hear the ‘real story’ from drug dealers and gang members.
Keepin’ It Real is an educational series whereby offenders dealing with a specific type of crime share their stories as part of their community service hours in hopes of helping the general community be better informed and prepared.
