May 13, 2020

The University of Chicago Crime Lab and Education Lab, in partnership with a group of Chinese American business leaders in Chicago led by Citadel Securities CEO Peng Zhao, are providing one million protective face masks to the city’s first responders and frontline workers.

The Crime Lab and Education Lab are working with city agencies and local nonprofits to distribute the protective masks to those most in need, including first responders across city agencies, essential staff at Chicago Public Schools working to feed and support families during the school closure, and non-profit organizations whose critical social services and anti-violence work with the city’s most vulnerable youth and families continues amid the pandemic.
