LPEI was introduced on April 19, 2013 as part of "The Day of Silence" commemoration by high school GSAs across the country.  The full Program's launch took place in the Fall of 2013.  Our fully interactive website, which is integrated into the Legacy Project database, will continue to be enhanced based on your feedback.  LPEI resources have been introduced into the GSA Network as an after school activity, in cooperation with Illinois Safe Schools Alliance.  Several local colleges and universities use LPEI and a visit to the Legacy Walk as part of their curriculum training for pre-service teachers studying education.  Students are invited to participate in the Legacy Walk's annual dedications of new plaques every October.  For more information call 312-608-1198.
