In the heart of Chicago, the I AM Campaign finds itself in the cross-hairs of both the impact of historical slavery and the realities of modern day slavery.  A city that is nationally known to wrestle with issues of racism and violence, as well as being the birthplace of a great number of well-respected leaders and activists, Chicago is well acquainted with the complexity such overlap brings. In this space, the I AM Campaign seeks to raise these under-spoken realities to the surface, and boldly address the way our past far too easily impacts our future, and beckons us to write a different story of freedom and healing.

The I AM Campaign seeks to coach local communities and national stakeholders alike in the skills of community organizing which raises awareness, advocates and invests in aftercare in a meaningful way.

One project emerging from this work is the Not On Our Watch initiative, a collective of businesses and corporations committed to raising awareness about modern day slavery. In partnership with Wilmington College, the I AM Campaign is building out the infrastructure to
