The Kids Off The Block Memorial

Kids Off The Block maintains a memorial of stones of young people killed by gun violence. The memorial is located in Chicago’s West Pullman neighborhood, with the mission “to provide at-risk low income youth positive alternatives to gangs, drugs, truancy, violence and the juvenile justice system.”

To shock people into action, Latiker set up a stone memorial at 11623 South Michigan Avenue. In memory of all the young people who have lost their life to gun violence since 2007.  There are more than 600 stones lining the memorial, each representing a victim.
