  • Catholic Criminal Justice Reform Network: Panel Discussion with Cardinal Cupich

    February 21, 2024
    Time 4:30 pm
    Location: The Athenaeum

    The Hank Center is proud to support Catholic Criminal Justice Reform Network, a much needed initiative created by the Honorable Thomas More Donnelly– Cook County Judge, Loyola Law Faculty, and Board Member at the Hank Center. Judge Donnelly will engage a panel of experts–including Cardinal Cupich and Jeannie Bishop–on this central movement and mandate of Restorative Justice. We joined our friends at Lumen Christi (who convened this conversation) and our friends at the Historic Athenaeum Center for Thought and Culture at St. Alphonsus Ligouri (who hosted it). This event was by invitation only. If interested, please contact the Hank Center for more information.

  • Unequal Impact: Environmental Racism and Faith Based Resources in Restorative Justice

    Climate change and Restorative Justice are deeply connected. From workers’ rights, to land use, to pollutant loads in neighborhoods, people of color are exposed to far greater environmental health hazards than others. The Hank Center and special guests hosted a conversation on these vital topics. Part of SES’s Sixth Annual Climate Change Conference.
