In March, ProPublica Illinois hosted an event on ticket debt with WBEZ and IRRPP. The event helped highlight different experiences and perspectives within the community, adding important context to a citywide policy debate. Now, ProPublica has created a toolkit to help Chicagoans host their own events about Chicago’s ticketing system. Find out more and download the toolkit here.
Although Native American Chicagoans play a central role in the social fabric of the city, relatively little attention has been directed to documenting the experiences of racial discrimination and inequities for Native American Chicagoans.
