Peace Hub Youth Conference Addresses Chicago Violence

The conference takes place at the Gary Comer Youth Center in the Grand Crossing neighborhood.

Ayoka Mota Samuels, director of the center, said the response to the conference the past two years has been overwhelmingly positive. She said she’s seeing more interest from the general public this year.

The public is also invited to attend, although the event is nearly at capacity, according to organizers.

Mota Samuels says that since the conference began, she’s seen participants develop better understandings of the issues facing Chicago’s youth.
