Y.O.U. and a coalition of Evanston non-profits celebrated MLK Day on Monday, January 21, 2013, by coming together for Diverse Evanston Walks United (DEWU). DEWU is an annual, community-wide celebration that engages young people from across Evanston in performances and speeches that promote non-violence.

Below are two articles and a video to commemorate our uplifting and inspiring event this year:
