Chicago Foundations support the initiative 'Envisioning Justice,' facilitated by Illinois Humanities
Envisioning Justice is an arts education initiative created and facilitated by Illinois Humanities that engages Chicagoans of all neighborhoods, races, socio-economic backgrounds in a citywide conversation about the impact of incarceration in local communities. The exhibition invites residents to use the arts and humanities to devise strategies for lessening the impact of incarceration. It seeks to strengthen efforts to reimagine our criminal legal system. As part of the arts programming, nine groups received funding in 2018 for their work inside the correctional system. Two Fry Foundation grantees, Young Chicago Authors and Red Clay Dance, were among the recipients.
The Fry Foundation was one of many Chicago foundations that supported the initiative. Follow the link to learn more about the initiative.
