ABC7: Spoken word artists Imagine Englewood If . . .

[VIDEO] I believe this event had just passed, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Check out the full video above from our local ABC affiliate:
The youth-lead campaign called Pocket Change 4 Youth is an initiative of the non-profit organization Imagine Englewood If. It is primarily funded by the Illinois Violence Prevention Authority.

"We also have homework and tutoring help. We also do a lot of field trips so young people can get out of the neighborhood and see another part of the world and it transforms their lives," Brown-El said.

One child at a time, the group hopes their efforts will ripple through the community and inspire other youth toward positive change.

The Open Mic Youth Summit takes place on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. Find out more at
I hope positive events such as this will continue to get notice from our local media outlets!
