Event description

Description

I Am We is a 501c3 arts organization. Our purpose is to magnify young voices throughout Chicago through the medium of performing, visual and digital art, including film.

As a result, we have listened to teens of Chicago that we serve through one of our amazing partnerships, After School Matters. Through this partnership, we provide students of Chicago Quest High-School with after-school programming, through our film-program, "Chicago Youth Speaks."

This Fall, our students are looking deeper into the culture of bullying, and are learning that many "bullies" are victims themselves. Therefore, our students have created "Imagine If Someone Stood Up For Me | The Bully Perspective" to provide an in depth look at "Who is the bully" and how can we help them end this cycle of violence, isolation and shame.

Many of the students we serve, have shared that they too have played the role of the bully in their young lives, due to:

Trauma experiences at home

Food insecurity

Isolation

Abuse

Poverty

Lack of mentorship, hope, etc.

Our youth believe we need to tell the stories of bullies so we can better support them and truly create environments of peace. Imagine If is the second series of our teens. Their goals is to share this film with schools, institutions and faith based organizations throughout Chicago.

They believe in doing so, collectively as Chicago citizens, we can become a community of problem solvers and significantly curb the negative behavior of bullying that can follow youth into adulthood if we don't end its preventable practices early.

If you are a school, community member or citizen, please sign up and share this event.
