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

Moderated by

Rev. Dr. Janette C. Wilson, National President, Rainbow PUSH Inc.
