CHICAGO’S UNSUNG HEROES
In an effort to inspire, empower and connect communities, I Am We has launched its ﬁrst citywide initiative, Chicago’s Unsung Heroes, The Traveling Photography and Audio Exhibition. Through this endeavor, we will highlight 20 of Chicago’s most amazing everyday citizens, who have identiﬁed a need, created a solution, and as a result, are impacting communities and transforming lives.
We are very excited about this campaign to connect communities. In addition to highlighting these amazing everyday heroes, we will also highlight 20 additional people who are forever changed by the positive contributions of these unsung heroes.
In this initiative, I Am We will be working with professional photographers,writers and youth. Our goal is to expose youth to unsung heroes who are making a difference in Chicago, while introducing them to the foundations of interviewing, writing, photography and editing. We believe through this endeavor, we will expose youth to a new set of skills, and inspire them to attend college where their passion can turn into a rewarding career.
