ACS Chicago: Illinois Criminal Justice Reform Bill: Facts vs Fiction
The new Illinois criminal justice reform bill includes significant positive changes but may not cover the scope of needed accountability. Join the ACS Chicago Lawyer Chapter, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, NCJW Illinois, the NAACP of DuPage County and Evanston and North Shore, Illinois NOW, and the League of Women Voters of Naperville as we host an expert panel that will sift through this complex bill, so that we can better understand the gains we’ve made and areas that still require advocacy. Following the panel will be Q and A.
This event will feature:
Hon. Chris Welch, Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives
Hon. Kim Foxx, Cook County State’s Attorney
John Maki, Director of Innovations, Alliance for Safety and Justice
Sharone Mitchell Jr., Cook County Public Defender
Hon. Eric Rinehart, Lake County State’s Attorney
Rev. Dr. Janette C. Wilson, National President, Rainbow PUSH Inc.
