The founders of DPYPAC, husband and wife team Sergeant Daniel and Victoria Allen, grew up on the westside of Chicago, and experienced first-hand the challenges and obstacles that surrounded their community, and strives to provide opportunities for youth from all backgrounds to do something positive with their talents and their time. 

“We’re pleased to be able to take an active role to help bring awareness, and put an end to senseless gun violence that has plague our entire city, said Daniel. “The recent mass shootings in schools around the country is of grave concern to us, and we will have a moment of silence in remembrance of all those who have died as a result of firearms,” he added.
