After the recent passage of Illinois’ sweeping criminal justice omnibus legislation, join us for two Rapid Response programs around the theme of RE-FORM, curated by Illinois Humanities’ Envisioning Justice initiative. Learn more about each event and register to attend below.
The Wednesday evening program will showcase a selection of insightful contributors from across multiple disciplines as they reflect on the concept of reform and what the term has meant to those dedicated to changing — or abolishing — our current systems of punishment, incarceration, and community policing. Contributors include: Ky Ajayi, Jenn Carrillo, Po’Chop, Angel Bat Dawid, Silvia Ines Gonzalez, Renaldo Hudson, Gabriela Juarez, James Kilgore, and Najee Zaid Searcy. This event is free and open to the public, and will stream on the Illinois Humanities YouTube page. Learn more and RSVP to attend.
For those interested in learning more about HB-3653 and what its implementation will mean for Illinois, please join us for a facilitated, critically reflective conversation. Participants will have the opportunity to pose questions about the bill and to be in dialogue with carceral justice experts from across Illinois. Content experts include: Brian Dolinar, Aisha Edwards, David Olson, and Briana Payton. This event is free and open to the public, and will be hosted live on Zoom. Learn more and RSVP to attend.
