Hi everyone, Just wanted to be sure you had heard about the opportunity to " Drive Out Ebola". Take care as always and thanks in advance for your donations. This city wide effort really does exemplify and illustrate what can happen when we publicly align and support for a cause greater than our individual objectives. http://tomficklin.blogspot.com/2014/11/city-pitches-in-for-sierra-leones-ebola.html

Restorative Practices: A Toolbox for Turbulent Times

Transcription of John and Peter's May 8, 2018 conversation with Thom Allena about his work in getting justice out of courthouses and into neighborhoods. Thom is a community and organizational psychologist who for nearly thirty-five years has worked in the fields of community and restorative justice, applying creative approaches to respond to crime, violence and group conflict. In Thom’s community justice work, citizens are invited to play active rather than passive roles in determining the shape of justice and become more directly involved in redressing the quality of life issues that are breached by crime.

JPMorgan Chase Brings Entrepreneurs of Color Fund to Chicago

JP Morgan Chase is teaming up with LISC, Accion and Fifth Third Bank on an investment effort to support the growth of minority-owned businesses on Chicago’s South and West Sides. LISC’s Maurice A. Jones joined Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Jamie Dimon, chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, to announce the Entrepreneurs of Color Fund—a model built on the bank’s similar efforts in other cities--as well as related support for small business mentoring. "This work is about catalyzing opportunity so that everyone—no matter their race, or zip code, or family background—has the chance to contribute to Chicago’s prosperity, and to share in its benefits as well,” Jones said.

Jones.
