The Hadiya Pendleton Intergenerational Summit:


Working Together to End Gun Violence​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

November 8, 2014

DuSable Museum of African American History

740 E. 56th Place Chicago, IL

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the first annual Hadiya Pendleton Intergenerational Summit: Working together to end gun violence. The Summit, held November 8, 2014, was a huge success!


The youth participants left us floored by their comments and insights on how Hadiya’s Promise can help to end gun violence, engage at-risk youth and support families and communities impacted by gun violence.


We wish to extend our deepest gratitude to those who contributed to the success of the Summit.



Thank you to the panelists for sharing their knowledge, thoughts, experience and time. You have the vision, knowledge and experience to pave the way into the future of Hadiya’s Promise and the Summit would not have been a success without your contribution.
