Thank you, Reverend Love, for this Valentine’s Day announcement.

The Rev. Velda R. Love is Director of the Justice and Intercultural Learning Office of Diversity at North Park University in Chicago where tonight students will gather to see The Interrupters

If you can’t join them, you can watch the television premiere of this award-winning PBS documentary on WTTW or your local PBS station at 7:00 PM.

The Interrupters tellsthe moving story of three dedicated “violence interrupters”—Ameena Matthews, Cobe Williams and Eddie Bocanegra—who, with bravado, humility and humor, work to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they themselves once employed.

“Their work and their insights are informed by their own journeys, which, as each of them points out, defy easy characterization.”
