ProPublica's Driven Into Debt Toolkit

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.

IRRPP Report on Native American Chicagoans

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. In this report, we draw on available data to describe the current conditions and experiences of Native American Chicagoans, including areas where they are thriving and areas where they are negatively affected by the legacy of racial exclusion as well as ongoing discrimination.
