On August 4, 41 people in Chicago were shot in from Saturday through Sunday morning, five fatally. The cause of the gun violence was mostly gang involved, according to the Chicago Police Department. There are many organizations trying to stop gun violence in Chicago, including Project Orange Tree, who empower teens to stop gun violence in their neighborhoods and raise awareness about gun violence in Chicago. Another organization is Cure Violence, an organization that is trying to stop the normalization of gun violence.
