Hi, my name is Arieyanna Williams. I am from the west side of Chicago, born and raised in violence. My very first funeral was my father’s and I was only nine years old. His death among many other family, friends, neighbors, and every other person affected by violence fueled my work that I do now. I fight for more than just decreasing gun violence but also more resources, employment, and education for my city. I’m apart of many small groups dedicated to safer streets and homes such as The North Lawndale peace warriors and Chicago Strong.
