About the event

Dear Life Comes From It Community,

Thank you very much for RSVPing to the LCFI event on Tuesday, July 5th at 18th St. Casa de Cultura in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago.

This is a special opportunity to gather ahead of the 8th NACRJ conference. We are beyond grateful for the enthusiasm to come together and are expecting more than 100 grantees, donors, and friends for a special day of sharing meals, music, poetry, ceremony, story, laughter and learning.

We are also delighted to offer free bodywork and free professional headshots on-site for all who are interested! First come, first serve. Please see below for more information & the agenda.

For those arriving in Chicago earlier, we will also gather for a community BBQ on Monday, July 4th around 5pm at Semillas y Raices: 1539 South Pulaski Rd, Chicago, IL 60623.
