This intensive, fun, and multi-faceted day of programming draws together some of the organizations and individuals most dedicated to dismantling the inequities in our criminal justice system and to creating a more just Chicago. See how to de-escalate difficult situations to avoid police intervention, step into the experience of a person returning from incarceration through a “re-entry simulation,” learn about the prison-abolition movement, participate in a healing circle, find out what it takes to volunteer inside the Cook County Department of Corrections, and/or enjoy bombastic performances by young people from throughout the city, and more.
This full day of programming includes lunch for all attendees as well as a “choose your own adventure” style schedule that allows you to dive deeply into the topics and activities that most interest you.
Come for a specific workshop or stay all day!
Stay tuned for the full Activation Day schedule … coming soon!
