Students from the Joliet Central High School Fearless Females Z Club, Brother 2 Brother, Black Student Union, and Club Puentes will host a Showcase for Peace on April 25, 2018 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Joliet Central High School Student Center on 201 E Jefferson St, Joliet, IL 60432.

This free community event will feature student speeches, spoken word, dramatic and musical performances, as well as student artwork and photography about their stance on gun violence in our schools and our community.

The Showcase for Peace builds off the momentum of the #OurJT17 initiative to keep the conversation on safer schools going.

Fearless Females Club Sponsor Ashley Samsa said, ““Students have been incredibly engaged with this issue and asking: ‘What’s next?’ We met with student representatives from each group and decided that this would be a great next step to keep the conversation going about gun violence in our schools and our community.”

Joliet area students may submit written material (which you will read aloud at the showcase) and artwork to Ms. Samsa at asamsa@jths.org or Mr. Crim at ecrim@jths.org.
