Illinois Humanities to kick off Envisioning Justice A Citywide Conversation on Incarceration


Illinois Humanities will hold a press conference on Tuesday, April 3 at 10:30 a.m. at the Roberts Temple Church of God in Christ, 4021 S. State St. in Chicago to announce the kick-off of Envisioning Justice, a year long, city wide conversation assisted by arts and humanities activities about incarceration and its impact on all Chicago communities.


Created and facilitated by  Illinois Humanities, Envisioning Justice will engage Chicagoans, of all neighborhoods, races, socio-economic backgrounds, and with a diversity of perspectives, in a citywide conversation about the impact of incarceration in local communities and will invite residents to use the arts and humanities to devise strategies for lessening this impact. Envisioning Justice seeks to strengthen efforts to reimagine our criminal legal system and is inspired by the goals of justice, accountability, safety, support, and restoration for all people.
