I created the phrase “Straight From The Go” to dispel the belief that Chicago is by nature a violent city that has no interest in creating a safe community where residents can live in peace and harmony.

Raven And Rahm

STRAIGHT FROM THE GO founder Raven Smith and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel at the Morgan Park peace fest honoring Raven and the STRAIGHT FROM THE GO brand.

A Letter From The First Lady

First Lady Michelle Obama is a shining example of the amazing promise and potential of people “Straight From The Go”. Thank you for making this country, and Chicago, so proud!

The Goal of “Straight From the Go” is to Foster the image that Chicago is home to many who believe in doing good things for others; Love From Companies (I Love Chicago, Accent Chicago, and Love from Chicago) Is in full support of that. Watch over the next few weeks for #SFTG line of T-shirts to be sold at O’Hare Airport, Water Tower, Michigan Ave., North Michigan, Wabash, Woodfield and Navy Pier locations.

Buy a T-shirt and join us in displaying the Pride, we feel, for the wonderful City of Chicago. Proud to be “Straight From The Go”

Chicago: a city of unwavering pride, inspiring hope, and passionate people. When violence affects one Chicagoan, it affects us all. Proceeds from every SFTG shirt provide funding for critical education, anti-violence programs and at-risk children across Chicago. We are the city of big shoulders and even bigger hearts. We are not Chiraq, we are those who stand respectfully together.  We are “STRAIGHT FROM THE GO”!
