Latino Moms unite against Chicago violence with May 10 event

The Chicago Sunday Evening Club is inviting women who have lost children to violence in Chicago’s Latino communities to join in discussion at a Tuesday, May 10, 2016, Mother’s Day luncheon at St. Paul Church Hall, 2127 W 22nd Place in Chicago, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Central).

The event, presented in partnership with the Resurrection Project, will feature conversations with mothers who are leading peacemaking efforts within the Pilsen, Little Village and Back of the Yards communities. These roundtable “peace circle” discussions will be moderated by Univision Chicago.

As part of the Chicago Sunday Evening Club’s commitment to involving faith groups in addressing the problem of violence in the city, A Mother’s Love for Peace seeks to bring women together to talk, drawing on the historically strong relationship between Hispanic families and their traditional church ties.

The May 10 Latino celebration of motherhood coincides with On the Table, a dynamic citywide conversation intended to foster open discussion across all areas of Chicago about problems that affect the city’s diverse neighborhoods and socioeconomic groups.

Dr. David Dault, Chicago Sunday Evening Club executive director, is excited about the opportunity to bring together groups of women who have keenly felt the impact of violence in the city.  “These mothers understand better than anyone the need for peaceful solutions,” he explained, “We can learn much from these women who have experienced the kind of personal pain that is a deep motivator for seeking change.”

Dault pointed out that the Chicago Sunday Evening Club seeks to inspire people to put their faith into action to make Chicago better and is pleased to be partnering with On The Table [https://onthetable.com/], the Resurrection Project and Univision Chicago to present A Mother’s Love for Peace.
