On Chicago’s West Side, more than 50 AT&T employees volunteered to celebrate and support the community at “Put the Guns Down: Faith AND Action,” a signature anti-violence program from the City of Chicago.
The program encourages Chicago residents, community organizations, block clubs, faith groups, businesses and institutions to organize citywide anti-violence activities. It is designed to send a positive message of peace for the city.
“This night was a great example of how AT&T employees volunteer to support the neighborhoods where our employees and customers live,” said Paul La Schiazza, AT&T Illinois President. “We want to help improve lives and bring opportunities to the residents of neighborhoods on the south and west sides of Chicago.”
The event drew neighborhood residents, as well as members of the Chicago Police Department and local union leadership for AT&T employees.
