What Will It Take?

What Will It Take? is the Chicago Foundation for Women's campaign to make Illinois the safest state in the U.S. for women and girls. That's where the ad on the Orange Line came from. You can see the ad here.

Elsewhere on the site you can view stats on different kinds of violence against girls and women, find hotlines for important services, comment on discussion boards and even sign up to volunteer. They even have a men's initiative that is hosting a forum tomorrow on whether art and media cause violence against women and girls.

The project continues all year, so check back to their site for more events if you are interested. They've made a real effort to connect to this community, speaking at Peace and Education meeting and holding an event at West Side Tech that was well-publicized to groups here.
