    Be Strong Families is partnering with and amplifying I Grow Chicago's Healing Justice model of individual and community transformation through hosting A More Perfect Union (AMPU) Parent Cafe. AMPU Cafes are safe spaces for families to share struggles and strategies, to learn from each other how to navigate the complex and often unjust context in which parenting occurs. At this event, we will create a community vision board of a thriving and vibrant community where all can co-exist peacefully, respecting one another. All are welcome and invited, including Chicago police officers who serve this community. Light dinner will be served promptly at 6:00 pm.

    I Grow Chicago helps love live in public in Englewood by transforming vacant lots and abandoned homes into a healing zone filled with accessible resources, engaging more than 3000 people per year to address the root causes of trauma and violence.

    Be Strong Families is known best around the country for Parent Cafes -- physically and emotionally safe spaces where parents and caregivers talk about the challenges and victories of raising a family. With the Strengthening Families, protective factors as our foundation, the A More Perfect Union (AMPU) Cafes occur at the nexus of social justice and parenting. In AMPU cafes, parents grapple with and explore how to assist themselves and their children with issues such as bullying, stereotypes, racism (and other -isms), immigration, religious discrimination, policing, violence, LGBTQ issues, gender equality, and disability. Be Strong Families’ Art & Activism Events use artistic expression to bring balance to these often emotionally intense conversations.
