Seeds of Change 2020: March 31st

 

DONALD F. ERICKSON SYNAPSES AWARD

CHERYL GRAVES AND ORA SCHUB (POSTHUMOUSLY)


In 1997, attorneys Cheryl Graves and Ora Schub developed the first juvenile court diversion program in Chicago based on restorative justice practices. In 2003, they founded the Community Justice for Youth Institute, which has since trained thousands of people in restorative justice principles and practices. Lovingly known as the “grandmothers of Chicago’s restorative justice movement,” Cheryl and Ora created clear processes for how communities can respond to harm when it occurs, inspiring a generation of young activists to envision a world without police and prisons. Sadly, Ora passed away in 2018 after a long battle with cancer.

 

Help us meet our goal of raising $150,000 to support movement work in Chicago. We are over 70% of our fundraising goal!
