The BRAVE Youth Leaders, Chicago, IL started this petition to Governor J.B. Pritzker

Gun violence particularly in Chicago and surrounding in areas/counties are at epidemic proportions. According to the New York Post, more youth have been shot and killed by gun violence in Chicago than COVID-19 in 2021.

The BRAVE Youth Leaders, the violence prevention youth council of Saint Sabina in Chicago, IL would like you to join our cause in asking for Governor J.B. Pritzker to declare a "state of emergency" in its need to address violence and crime in Chicago and surrounding areas.

With this state of emergency we are asking that additional emergency funds be allotted via state grant opportunities to community grassroots organizations/programs for: 

 

1.Youth Mentoring and After School Violence Prevention Programs, Organizations and Services 

 

2.Organizations Servicing At-Risk and Criminal Involved Youth under 25 years and younger. 

 

3.Initiating a Taskforce with the ATF (The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) assigned with the IL State Police to gun/drug trafficking and shooting/homicide cases.

 

4.Full time mental health/trauma specialists staffing in to public schools and community organizations along with a combination of trade and vocational classes and certification opportunities with college readiness resources for youth.

 

5.Incorporating of a Statewide Violence Prevention Office With Grassroot Organizations as Liaisons
