FUFA stirred up city-wide and national discussions this spring through our youth-authored article “Beyond Chris Brown and Rihanna”. The article was published by the Chicago Tribune and used by schools and organizations not just in Chicago, but all over the country. In order to share the article with other youth, FUFA leaders turned it into a mini-zine with pictures, and started passing it out. The zine has helped us to facilitate a workshop on strategies to support survivors of violence with local high schools and community groups.
