Let’s talk about justice 

On Aug. 31, a new “Restorative Justice Community Court” opened in North Lawndale serving non-violent offenders. It is part of a community-led effort to keep 18-26 year olds from the neighborhood with non-violent criminal histories out of jail and “restored” back to community.

Join City Bureau’s summer fellows, who’ve been reporting on the topic for 10 weeks, for a discussion of what role community can play in alternatives to the traditional criminal justice system. The event will take place on Thursday, Sept. 21, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Build Coffee, 6100 S. Blackstone Ave. in Chicago.
