Learn more about Evanston's reparations initiative.
I am honored to have the opportunity to support Robin Rue Simmons 5th Ward Alderman and her work on Evanston’s historic reparations plan alongside Dino Robinson of Shorefront Legacy Center.
Last year, Evanston became the first municipality in America to commit public dollars to reparations for its Black residents. Join CAFHA, Alderman Robin Rue Simmons of Evanston's 5th Ward, and advocates Kemone Hendricks, Founder & CEO of Evanston Present and Future, and Morris (Dino) Robinson Jr., Founder & Executive Director of Shorefront Legacy Center, in a virtual discussion on Evanston's plans for reparations, the process and tools advocates used to fight for this policy, and what this means for other municipalities.
