826CHI, in collaboration with Demo Duck, is proud to present “She'Cago,” a short, animated film adapted from a poem by Izzy, a 10th grade student at 826CHI. With her words, Izzy is reshaping the narrative of Chicago. We're calling on you to make sure her voice is heard. Hear Izzy read her poem, share her story with your community, and donate to 826CHI in honor of the young writers who will move Chicago forward.
