Event Support for Roll N Peace 6: All in Phavor

At Chicago Cares, we believe volunteering should be the start of a journey toward equity in our city. Through this program, volunteers will connect with Chicagoans through service and collaborate with community-led organizations to promote health and wellness in the Englewood community.

Join Chicago Cares in partnership with Think Outside Da Block’s Roll N Peace 6: All In Phavor, a community-led event that uses cycling as the plan of action to address the public safety and mental health and wellness of the Englewood community. Roll N Peace decreases violence through community presence, increases physical fitness with exercise and mobility, and improves emotional, psychological, and social well-being through intentional community engagement. Over the past 5 engagements, Roll N Peace has grown its base to include over 2,000 registered participants, and now you have an opportunity to get involved! Through hands-on service, volunteers will learn about the assets and challenges facing the Englewood community, develop a better understanding of community-led action, and support Englewood’s Quality of Life priorities.

Project Details This project offers a chance for volunteers and community members to connect with each other, share stories, and build trust and empathy. Upon signing up, there will be a volunteer training video to watch.

From 4-7pm: Volunteer tasks will include supporting set-up, assisting with registration, and supporting the community expo.

From 7-11pm: Volunteer tasks will include distributing PPE and water, helping guide participants along the route, and assisting with post-event clean up.
