C.L.I.C.K. for Justice and Equality is an agent of change alerting our social community of injustices and inequalities among the underserved, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised individual or group. A disadvantaged or disenfranchised person or group is anyone who is socially, culturally, and politically deprived of or oppressed from life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Change takes place through our legislative body of Senators and State Representatives, not from the Judicial bench.

This week may feel like Spring has finally sprung, but we at Project Hood are moving forward with plans for the summer. We have great things planned for the community and the city. We also recognize that each family is also making their plans. So, in this edition we are enclosing some timely information. Its time for our teens to start filling out those applications for summer jobs and parents for summer camps.
Please read and share these articles with your family and friends. Spread the word about Project Hood.

TOGETHER. SHAPING THE FUTURE.
This week at project choices, our youth had a chance to experience something different. When they walked into group, a table complete with easels, canvases, and paintbrushes awaited them!
Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle are proud to announce One Summer Chicago. One Summer Chicago (OSC) connects young people to summer jobs, internships and training programs being offered throughout the City. Through OSC, young adults have the opportunity to learn job skills, develop their resumes and explore career interests.
This past week the beltway discussion about gun control saw a conversion of words into action, thanks not only the Senate calendar and the Thursday cloture vote on new gun reforms, but also the Newtown families who successfully lobbied senators to thwart a Republican filibuster attempt and open debate on those reforms. One of the victims' mothers even stood in for President Obama and delivered the White House Weekly Address. But also adding her voice to the mix, somewhat unexpectedly, was the president's wife: first lady Michelle Obama.
ProjectHOOD will Kick-Off the Summer with a 5K Walk and a 10K Run, culminating with a Peace and Health Rally. Our city needs something that will foster collaboration and community. Going into the summer, it's no secret, history has suggested that our children are at a greater risk of exposure to violence and we need something that will produce hope. Chicago is a runners' city and in conjunction with the City of Chicago and others, this could ideally be the event of the year!
