As a participant of discussions about police brutality ,involving young african american youth and young adults, as a circle keeper in the '' Gone But Not Forgotten'' a monthly peace circle held at Blocks Together in the heart of the West Humboldt Park community in Chicago, I realized that I want to talk about this issue that happens in our community.

I decided to create this video, after the emotional impact of hearing these people stories. The moment I  sat down and recorded the voices from the participants reading about 30 heartbroken cases in how they lost their loved ones.  These victims were innocent in the first place, and through the articles that were read to represent the victim as a criminal, It was spoken otherwise from the fonts in between the cases that did not comprehend on why the reason they should be  brutally murder.

If you want to join the community circle; Blocks Together is a membership based organization that works together for systematic changes in the community to bring concrete improvement into people's life.
