North Lawndale Ride for Peace—Bike Out Negativity  - Saturday, May 21, 2022


“Boxing Out Negativity” empowers youth ages 8+ to realize the best within themselves.  It stems from the grassroots efforts of coach and founder Derek Brown, who started his work with Chicago’s West side youth in 2009.

Their
youth boxing program prioritizes those who are at the highest risk for street involvement. Boxing is just the start of what they do: physical training, civic engagement, team building, recreation – they embrace the team as family.

To reach those who can most benefit, they offer their program at no cost to participants or their families, leaving them entirely dependent upon the generosity of donors and supporters.

They host multiple
community anti-violence events, most prominently their annual Street Love Ride, which draws the city together each August to spread love and positivity on the West side.

In
street intervention they carry the same values that guide the boxing program – radical inclusivity, accessibility, and a belief in the value of youth empowerment as a means for violence reduction.
Boxing Out Negativity: It’s more than a program, it’s a way of life.

Join them in their fight for peace in Chicago!
