Thank you to the almost 100 people’s who braved the cold to come to Dear Evanston’s Racial Justice B


Thank you to Jennifer Eason and William Eason of Jennifer's Edibles, Inc for the comfort-food-on-a-cold-night menu of Mac and Cheese, chicken wings, salad, and peach cobbler!

Thank you to Lynne Sered, Toni Sims, Leticia Barge, and Cynthia Barnes Slater for helping to set up and register participants.

Thanks to Cynthia who did lots of pre-event work to make things happen!

Thank you to our amazing facilitators Karla Thomas, Eileen Hogan Heineman, Heather Heuman Sweeney, Linda Slavik, Kimberly Holmes-Ross, Lesley Williams, Rina Campbell, Betsy Wilson, Toni Sims, and Cynthia Barnes Slater for leading our discussion groups and to Lesley for always preparing thought-provoking questions.

Thanks to Pamela Cytrynbaum and Betsy Wilson who brought their personal professional experiences with Restorative Justice and mitigation services to bear on the issue of injustice in incarceration.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Rick Tulsky of Injustice Watch, who was unable to join us tonight to speak about his organization’s work to uncover institutional corruption.

Thanks so much to Jeron Dorsey for proving us with space in the gym on very short notice (to accommodate our large group!).

I hope I’m not missing anyone. It takes a village to gather and read and learn and share and get proximate and be open to change within ourselves to make change in our neighborhoods and community.

PS: we missed you, Lonnie Wilson!

Please join us on Tuesday, February 18 to discuss “How to be an Anti-Racist” by Inbram X. Kendi.

Sign up here.

Dinner will be catered by Sugar Baker.
